The Institution of Parliamentary Control in Today’s Russia: New Challenges and Opportunities

Congress Centre, Justice Quarter. Conference hall E11
Effective Law for an Effective State
Legislative regulation of parliamentary control in the Russian Federation is advancing along a long and complex path – from the chaotic regulation of individual control institutions in acts of varying legal force to the adoption of specialized acts that reveal in detail the essence of parliamentary control as one of the most important functions of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation. The 2020 amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation indicate support for parliamentary control and its prioritization. Have the new challenges facing Russia affected the need to seek out new ways and methods of strengthening parliamentary control? Which problems are impeding the effective implementation of parliamentary control? What should the next thrust in the development of legislation on parliamentary control look like?
