Research on parliaments/legislatures in development?

Could anyone point me to either (1) any recent books or studies that extensively discuss the role of parliaments and other legislative bodies in state building and reconstruction in developing countries, particularly post-conflict ones like Balkans, Iraq, Afghanistan; or (2) any evaluations or assessments of development programs to strengthen legislatures that do not rely exclusively on qualitative methods or anecdotes but incorporate experimental, quasi-experimental, RCT or other quantitative evaluation methods?

I've dug up some basic resources and materials on Google and Google Scholar: New institutional economics
points in this direction, but I haven't seen anything that really focuses on where legislative institutions fit in that theory. And I've reviewed material like this this
the resources like those here
, but have pretty much run dry after that...
