Parliamentary integrity systems: Parliamentarians’ ethical conduct, accountability and transparency
2014 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper argues that ethical conduct by a parliament’s members is fundamental to the institution’s performance of its functions. Assurance that members are conducting themselves ethically requires that they are accountable for their conduct, which in turn requires that there is transparency around that conduct.
Parliaments vary widely in their approaches to ethical conduct, including the nature and extent of accountability and transparency by their members. This paper compares such approaches across a range of legislatures.
