The CPC workshops offered delegates an opportunity to hear from Commonwealth Parliamentarians and global experts on a wide range of topics from sustainable development and accessibility to pandemic responses and gender sensitive Parliaments.
With the ever-increasing focus on greater scrutiny of Parliamentarians and the overall public trust deficit in Parliaments, the CPA’s annual conference offers the opportunity for Members to benefit from professional development, supportive learning and the sharing of best practice with colleagues from Commonwealth Parliaments together with the participation of leading international organisations.
