Each year CPA UK holds a major international parliamentary conference in Westminster, bringing Members of international parliaments to Westminster to explore issues of the day and the role of parliamentarians in addressing them.
The next international parliamentary conference will be in March 2017 and will look at issues surrounding national security, and the role of parliamentarians. Further details will follow nearer the time.
The most recent International Parliamentary Conference was in March 2016 and was on sustainability, energy and development. The three and a half day workshop brought together more than 50 parliamentarians, 35 speakers and 25 observers from across the globe. Part of the international parliamentary project involved the creation of an e-handbook with information and practical tools for parliamentarians about their role in the delivery of the sustainability, energy and development.
In 2014, CPA UK's conference was the International Parliamentary Conference on Growth for Development: 'The role of parliamentarians in managing economic for equitable development.' To find out more about the conference and its outcomes, you can visit the conference microsite or download the communique.

The 2013 international parliamentary conference, held 23-26 November, explored 'The Post-2015 Development Agenda: placing parliamentarians at the centre of global development'.
In 2012, CPA UK collaborated with the British Group of the Inter-Parliamentary Union to host the International Parliamentary Conference on Gender & Politics. The communiqué is available to download here.
