Working Group IV: Regulatory Reform & the Rule of Law

 

The Working Group on Regulatory Reform and the Rule of Law provides a forum to exchange good practices in regulatory policy and to discuss how to best ensure effective access to justice services and strengthen the rule of law. The Working Group also contributes to the implementation of the MENA-OECD Regional Charter for Regulatory Quality and of country commitments under the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, notably to the Goal 16 on peace, justice and strong institutions.

 

Key outcomes

 

The Working Group has been instrumental in forming a community of practitioners and advancing the regional agenda on regulatory reform and the rule of law. The Working Group directed the pioneering OECD Report Regulatory Reform in the Middle East and North Africa and developed the Regional Charter for Regulatory Quality providing MENA countries with a common framework of principles and good practices for regulatory management. The Working Group has also assisted countries in strengthening legislative drafting skills using regulatory impact assessments and in facilitating stakeholder consultations for evidence based, transparent, efficient and effective regulations.

 

Meetings

 

 

The 2019 annual meeting of the Working Group "Towards people-centred justice & legal empowerment in MENA countries" took place within the Global OECD Policy Roundtable on Equal Access to Justice on 28 March 2019 in Lisbon, Portugal, and was co-chaired by Tunisia and Portugal.
