Résultat

L'une des principales fonctions du gouvernement central consiste à créer un ensemble équilibré de lois et de politiques qui, bien que sujettes à variations locales, reflètent des principes et des normes documentées et consensuelles, avec des lignes de gouvernance et d'autorité bien définies. Nos recommandations reflètent donc ces normes et idéaux.
