CPA UK and Northern Ireland

Parliamentarians from the UK and the Northern Ireland Assembly participate in regular multilateral activities facilitated by the CPA British Islands and Mediterranean Region (CPA BIMR), of which CPA UK is the Secretariat.

Parliamentarians and Clerks from the Northern Ireland Assembly have also participated as expert speakers and resource people in programmes arranged by CPA UK. Most recently, two Clerks completed attachments with the parliaments of Montserrat and Anguilla as part of the UK Overseas Territories Project. Building capacity of Clerks and parliamentary officials is essential in ensuring sustainability of change and transfer of knowledge between election cycles. Clerk attachments facilitated by CPA UK have had significant success in providing short-term bespoke assistance with long-term impact in addressing the concerns raised by local stakeholders.
