Legislative Praxis

This one week seminar is a capacity-enhancing program for legislators, legislative officers, and political party administrators from developing democracies. Like any society, societies with budding democracies need laws and social institutions that function independently of its leaders. The key to lawmaking is the legislative process which is the topic of this seminar. Participants are walked through how to write, debate and pass bills into law.  The modus operandi of legislators is also covered. We will also visit the Canadian Parliament in Ottawa and some historical sites.
