Westminster Seminar Series

CPA UK's Westminster Seminar Series provides an opportunity for parliamentarians and clerks from across the Commonwealth to explore parliamentary democracy, practice and procedure and to share experiences and challenges faced in their parliamentary work.

The 2018 Seminar was attended by over 70 delegates from every region in the Commonwealth. The focus of sessions ranged from the legislative process, the role of Members and Clerks, ethics and standards, engagement with the media and diversity and inclusion. It was a highly participatory and interactive exchange where rigorous discussion took place on parliamentary best practice and the various ways Westminster-style parliament’s work across the Commonwealth. The programme also included a visit to the National Assembly for Wales for a comparison on best practice with a smaller legislature.
