Westminster Seminar

Westminster Seminar


The annual Westminster Seminar is CPA UK’s flagship capacity-building programme for first-term parliamentarians and newly appointed procedural/committee Clerks from across the Commonwealth. Every year the programme provides a unique platform for participants to network and engage with counterparts; exploring different approaches to parliamentary democracy, practice and procedure in the context of the Westminster System and comparative Commonwealth parliamentary structures.

The reinvigorated programme will facilitate rigorous discussions on the continuing evolution of best practice to help parliamentarians and clerks better understand the different approaches to governance and their role within these parliamentary processes.

This year CPA UK will host the 2017 Westminster Seminar on Parliamentary Practice and Procedure from Monday 13 November – Friday 17 November 2017 at the Houses of Parliament in London.
