Development experts have increasingly recognized the importance of improving the use of law to foster good governance and implement more effective development strategies.;Bringing together the views of a number of commentators, each drawing on extensive experience as consultants in developing or transitional countries, the authors argue how law-makers might best go about building a national legal framework, as well as the necessary institutional structures of good governance which can serve as a foundation for their country's social and economic development. They differ on the extent to which each country's unique circumstances should be taken into account in drafting reform legislation, whether importing successful legislation from other countries is appropriate, and the role of legislative theory in formulating new laws.;Bringing these divergent approaches together has produced a challenging book which should encourage readers to contribute creatively to improving national law-making processes, and help build the kinds of national, and increasingly global, legal frameworks required to make development work.
