Events & Projects

Events & Projects

CPA UK runs and participates in a number of large-scale events and projects on a multilateral basis in Westminster and with partner parliaments.

Key features of the Conferences and Projects’ programme each year include the Westminster Seminar on Parliamentary Practice and Procedure and the Westminster Workshop series. The series aims at providing Members of Parliament from across the Commonwealth with practical knowledge and skills in parliamentary practice and procedure, enabling them to be more effective in their work. This year's Westminster Seminar will take place in November; further details will be available in due course. Reports of previous years' Seminars and Workshops are available in the resources section of the website.

CPA UK also holds annual international parliamentary conferences (IPC) exploring the engagement of parliamentarians with themes relating to international development, human rights, global governance, women in Parliament, energy and climate change and many more. Working with a multitude of international partners including the World Bank and UNDP, issues are explored with Members of Parliament, leading academics and experts from across the globe. The most recent,  IPC held from 14-17 March 2016, focused on sustainability, energy and development. The next IPC will be in March 2017. More information on this and other past interparliamentary conferences is available here.

We also contribute to a number of other initiatives, including supporting the Houses of Parliament in marking the 800th anniversary of the sealing of Magna Carta in 2015 with our international event on Human Rights in the Modern Day Commonwealth; Magna Carta to Commonwealth Charter, held 3-6 February 2015.
