Building Stronger Parliaments and Advancing Democracy
CPA UK's core work is to build relationships with parliaments across the Commonwealth. This is achieved through a programme of parliamentary strengthening and diplomatic based activities.
CPA UK undertakes work at the request of other parliaments around the Commonwealth, and our tailored programmes include individual country programmes, and large scale projects and activities that bring together Commonwealth parliamentarians and clerks.
Our flagship capacity building event is called the Westminster Seminar on Effective Parliaments and it is designed for first term parliamentarians and clerks. It is held every year in November over the course of a week, and focuses on peer-to-peer learning between participants.
