Parliament and the Media Programme


The objective of the Parliament and the Media Programme is to focus on the importance of the relationship between Parliament and the Media and to investigate how that relationship has evolved in the last decade. The onset of the digital era has altered fundamentally the context for public usage of parliamentary information and the expectations of citizens for good governance. It is undisputable that an informed society and open and accountable democratic institutions are essential for growth and development.                                                                  
In partnership with the World Bank Institute (WBI) from 2000 to 2003, the CPA held a series of conferences on Parliament and the Media. A new conference with a focus on the relationship between Parliament and the Media took place in Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh, India in April 2015.
