Legislative assessment requires a process to determine whether the enactment and implementation of a draft law will solve an identified social, economic, or environmental problem. In this course, we explore how the Legislative Problem-Solving Method can serve as a guide to assessing (1) whether a legislative proposal addresses an actual problem, and (2) whether passage of the legislative proposal would resolve that problem. 

This course features an anti-corruption checklist of behaviors that frequently undermine implementation, produce cost overruns or revenue shortfalls, and introduce unnecessary environmental or social risk. Participants use this tool to assess a legislative proposal’s provisions to ensure that the legislative proposal is drafted defensively against corruption.
