Legislative processes in transition

comparative study of the legislative processes in Finland, Slovenia and the United Kingdom as a source of inspiration for enhancing the efficiency of the Dutch legislative process

Summary

The main research question of the current study is when whether the efficiency of the Dutch legislative procedure for parliamentary acts indeed constitutes a problem, in particular if compared to the achievements of legislative processes in several other European countries and, if that turns out to be the case, whether lessons can be learned from those legislative processes and practices abroad with respect to pace and duration of the legislative process, phases and actors, transparency and the role of ICT.
