to increase the role of Public Benefit Organizations (PBOs) in society,
to promote their public benefit activities, to foster transparency and
accountability, and to provide guidance to the government for using public
benefit organizations in procurement of services for the benefit of the
general public, the [Parliament of Country] enacts the following:
While some countries
have a tradition of preambles, others do not. Even where no such tradition
exists, however, a law that regulates a completely new area, or one that
has not been regulated for decades, may well utilize a preamble in order
to introduce the subject matter and the general principles, which can
then be applied in interpreting the law.
The above preamble
is based in part on the Hungarian law on PBOs (1997). While it is appropriate
to include language in a preamble to a PBO law that encourages partnerships
between the government and PBOs, it would not generally be appropriate
to mandate by law that governments form partnerships with PBOs.
