Legislative Budget Offices: Making them work in developing countries

Development agencies have promoted the establishment of non-partisan legislative budget offices as a way of building the oversight capacity of legislatures in developing countries.  In a research note in the current issue of Governance, Jeffrey Straussman and Ari Renoni describe attempts to establish such offices in Jordan, Kenya, Morocco and Afghanistan.  Straussman and Renoni describe the two main challenges that must be overcome for these offices to work effectively, and key steps that can be followed to improve the likelihood of success.  Open access to the research note
