The common law legacy designed to improve public accountability in Vanuatu

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionResearchpeer-review


Vanuatu, while oscillating between diversity and unity to put into practice the ideals of public accountability, has a solid foundation and civil institutions capable of resolving this national question. The Common Law tradition has provided Vanuatu with a basis for the control of public accounting. Vanuatu having a plural system also stemming from Kastom and French civil law, other areas can also benefit from this pluralism. The Constitution of the Republic of Vanuatu and specific laws have created a detailed system of control of public accounts. There is no simple, economical or quick solution to improve the control of public accounts in Vanuatu. Solid construction bases already present. This involves associating them with the necessary role of nations and regional organizations as well as that of development partners.
