WHAT WE DO
The Training Program on Parliamentary Diplomacy aims to build the capacity of parliamentary staff in the Southeast Asian region to better support the diplomacy work of their Parliaments. This relatively new but increasingly necessary form of diplomacy has become an important tool to help Parliaments articulate their respective countries’ positions on how to address regional and global challenges.
The Training Program on Parliamentary Research is specifically designed to provide the necessary research skills required by parliamentary staff to support parliamentarians with up-to-date and reliable information that is effective for parliamentary decision-making and to support the representative, legislative and supervisory functions of parliament.
The seminar Program on Parliamentary Responsibilities intends to expose parliamentary staff, and eventually Parliamentarians, in the ASEAN region to knowledge exchange and good practice in specialized parliamentary work.
Parliamentary committee Work
Parliamentary committees are a vital part of the work of the Parliament. They examine bills/proposed laws in detail, scrutinize government policies and conduct studies on issues relevant to citizens so that lawmakers can make well-informed decisions.
The training workshop on Legislative Drafting Techniques aims to contribute to improving the legal skills of parliamentary staff so that they can better support parliamentarians to perform their legislative function.
Fiscal Analysis and Capacity Training
Training of Trainers
The PCAsia Programme on Training of Trainers (PCAsia-ToT) is designed to promote leadership capacity, mentoring and coaching approaches and learning-centered pedagogies for future trainers in the AIPA Member Parliaments. It seeks to build upon the professional development of parliamentary staff using various pedagogic strategies, which in turn help staff to undertake their parliamentary work.
