Themes - Parliament

WFD works with parliaments as specialised institutions that are vital to ensuring democratic and accountable governance. WFD applies an expert lens to understanding the macro context and micro procedures underpinning the work of these institutions, and on this basis develops targeted programmes that support the effective functioning of parliaments in identified areas. WFD often seeks to build the capacity of a parliament in reviewing legislation and state finances, like the annual budget. This involves working with parliamentary staff as well as MPs to develop their committee and research support, as well as working with a parliament’s Executive leadership to develop new rules, procedures, strategic plans and human resource management structures that fortify the institution over the long term.
