The handbook was the result of the 1998 Laurentian Seminar – a joint World Bank Institute and Parliamentary Centre of Canada initiative. The 1998 Laurentian Seminar, “Parliament and Good Governance: The Challenge of Controlling Corruption”, was attended by forty-one participants and observers from twenty two countries representing all regions of the world.
