The International Centre for Parliamentary Studies exists to promote effective policy making and good governance through enhanced interaction between Parliaments, governments and other stakeholders in society. The Centre’s primary focus is the empowerment of human capital through capacity building, and to this end, the Centre organises a range of training programmes, conferences and policy discussions to address current public policy issues on the international stage, within Europe and in the UK. These provide a forum for policy discussion, debate, networking and the consolidation of international best practice. We also provides a range of in-country consultancy services to public administrations and government agencies around the world, that bring tangible and lasting change. Our consultancy services cover a range of areas including electoral affairs, regulation, governance, public sector reform, health and security.
We are proud to have worked with a variety of international organisations including the World Bank, Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe, Council of Europe, the African Development Bank, the European Development Bank, the International Labour Organisation, the International Organisation for Migration, USAID, and many UN bodies including the UNDP, UN Women and UNICEF. We have also worked with a broad range of governments including the United Arab Emirates, South Africa, Kenya, the UK, Moldova, Saudi Arabia, Portugal, Lithuania, Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, the Turks and Caicos Islands, Bermuda, Sierra Leone, Kosovo, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Australia. We have trained more than 5,000 individuals and organisations in the last 4 years.
In addition, we are the publisher of the Government Gazette, a quarterly magazine that provides quality analytical and politically neutral coverage of the leading institutions and policymakers in the European Union.
