Project Summary

My current project is a comparative study of expenses and salary regulation for MPs in five Westminster democracies. The project seeks to develop a comparative framework for assessing the institutional design of regulatory regimes in these countries. It further seeks to develop a detailed empirical understanding of how independent or quasi-independent regulatory regimes function in relation to parliamentary institutions, and provide lessons for future policy making in this area.
