Pacific Islands Parliamentary Workshop, Wellington, New Zealand, 12-14 April 2018

In partnership with the Parliament of New Zealand, CPA UK hosted the Pacific Islands Parliamentary Workshop in Wellington, New Zealand. The Workshop brought together Members and clerks from across the Pacific to enhance their understanding of parliamentary democracy and their effectiveness as Members.

Commonwealth Parliamentarians' Forum, Westminster, 26 February-1 March 2018

CPA UK hosted the first Commonwealth Parliamentarians' Forum ahead of the UK hosting Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in April 2018. The Forum brought together national legislators from across the Commonwealth and set the scene for the CHOGM 2018 theme – ‘Towards a Common Future’. The Parliamentarians' Forum sparked dialogue, engaged parliamentarians in the summit agenda and created opportunities for in-depth cross-Commonwealth discussion. The Forum was an invaluable opportunity to reinforce and reinvigorate the Commonwealth’s aspirations, opportunities, challenges and relevance in the coming years.

The programme focused on a range of themes covering legislation, committee scrutiny, budgets, and engagement with civil society, international institutions and the private sector.
