What We Do

CPA Library and Research Hub

  

The CPA is a leading organisation in the field of strengthening parliamentary democracy. We believe in the value of providing accurate, balanced, academically rigorous information, data and research for our membership. We will continue to be an invaluable knowledge-hub, commissioning, producing and publishing toolkits, handbooks, guidelines and other materials for the benefit and use of Parliamentarians and parliamentary staff on a range of subject-specialisms, from parliamentary practice and procedure to overarching themes like COVID-19 or the SDGs. We will always endeavour to collaborate with leading international experts by incorporating their invaluable knowledge and experience into our research products.

Central to our strategy will be the ongoing provision of the Commonwealth Parliaments Research Service (CPRS). It is a world-renowned service which is uniquely placed to offer authoritative information relevant to the needs of our primary stakeholders. Our research is collected, designed and distributed to internal and external stakeholders through multiple channels. Our approach is to produce timely, high quality and valuable research particularly to those Parliamentarians and Parliaments unable to provide or access such resources from alternative sources.
