This CASE report aims to derive the characteristics of an effective fiscal governance framework, focusing on the incentives that ensure a commitment to the fiscal rules. It studies this problem with the use of econometric tools, complementing the analysis with formal modelling through the lens of a dynamic principal-agent framework. The study shows that both economic and institutional factors play an important role in incentivising countries’ fiscal  efforts.
