Enhancing Effective Legislative Research

Year : 2011

This report highlights the importance of effective research support for legislators in the light of the growing complexity of governance. With the onset of the information revolution, legislative duties have become increasingly complex and challenging as legislative debates now have to be evidence based while such evidence must be credible. With these challenges in mind the Policy Analysis and Research Project (PARP) of the National Assembly of Nigeria in collaboration with Nigeria with the Nigeria Institute of Social and Economic Research (NISER) organised a two-day seminar on enhancing effective legislative research for senior staff of the National Assembly. This report documents proceedings from the seminar and provides a durable reference material to legislative staff and aides on delivering effective research support to legislators
