Parliamentary Diplomacy has become an important tool to help Parliaments to address regional and global challenges. The Training Program on Parliamentary Diplomacy aims to strengthen the capacity of parliamentary staff in the region to better support their parliaments engage in this relatively new, but increasingly necessary, form of diplomacy.

They will be able to prepare effective speeches, memoranda, and to assist in the creation of draft resolutions on a variety of subjects related to international relations and foreign affairs. Fellows will also be able to demonstrate an increased awareness of international relations, foreign affairs, international law, parliamentary processes and the workings of certain inter-parliamentary organizations, particularly as they relate to the above mentioned parliamentary diplomacy documents.
