Peace-building, Security and National Safety
Against the backdrop of international relations dominated by globalization of varied sectors, peace and security remain on national, regional, and international agendas. In this regard, parliaments are able to participate in this theme in regard to peace and security related matters through their constitutional roles in representation, oversight, inter-party discussions and debates, national budgeting, and local and international forums.
This is the rationale behind the initiation of Peacebuilding, Security, and National Safety as one of the focus themes of the Parliamentary Centre of Asia.
Drawing on the local and foreign expertise, the theme is specially designed to introduce trainees from Parliaments in the region on relevant concepts; practical approaches and mechanisms; overview of the contemporary regional security environment and architecture; and examination of the main features of peacebuilding and potential actors involved, principally parliaments and related organizations—the Inter-Parliamentary Assemblies, the United Nations, ASEAN and AIPA.
The goal is to enable our parliamentary staff to work with their respective Members of Parliaments (MPs) and parliamentary institutions on topics related to peace, security, and national safety to further contribute to the parliamentary roles in peacebuilding at the local and regional levels.
