WFD is planning to organise an eight-week certification course on Introductory level Law-making in Parliaments via online delivery platform. WFD’s programming in Myanmar has focused on delivering support to build in-house technical expertise and capacity to create quality legislation. The Myanmar programme is working towards developing a dedicated unit for legislative scrutiny, capacity building activities for legislative drafting, legislative scrutiny, PLS and advisory support to improve the Hluttaw rules of procedure. This online course will provide an introduction on Law-making in Parliaments and address experts and staff from the Myanmar Parliament, aiming to familiarise them with basic concepts in contemporary law-making and motivate them to reflect on how these concepts can be applied in the Myanmar political context.
The course addresses experts and staff from the Myanmar parliament as well students and participants from civil society organisations.
The learning objectives of the proposed certificated course:
- Introduce participants to basic concepts and tools of legislative quality and law-making in a comparative perspective.
- Motivate participants to reflect on the potential use of these concepts and tools in their jurisdiction.
The Coronavirus (COVID19) pandemic poses a particular risk to emerging or less resilient democracies, as a response to the pandemic, the course will be delivered via online and digital platforms.
