Abstract

This policy paper looks at the processes involved in drafting legislation, taking it through the stages of consultation, parliamentary approval and enactment, developing the institutional framework and taking the first steps in implementation. The information is derived from empirical data collection in CARICOM countries, but also draws on lessons from the experiences of other developing countries.
