Abstract

Beyond Westminster: A Global Perspective on Public Governance and Accounts addresses the factors that contribute to public accounts committee (PAC) effectiveness in countries around the world. The publication looks at countries in 10 regions. This chapter examines the PACs of the British Isles: those in the British Parliament in London; in the newer parliaments of Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales; in the small island states of Jersey, Guernsey, and the Isle of Man; and also the PAC in Ireland. Specifically, it examines PACs’ effectiveness through the lens of three determinants: opportunity, capacity, and motivation.
