The 2nd Annual Global Symposium of the Parliamentary Training Institutes (PTIS) will be hosted by The Centre for Parliamentary Studies and Training (CPST) Kenya in collaboration with McGill University and the Association of European Parliamentarians with Africa (AWEPA). This symposium seeks to bring together professionals working in PTIs, Legislative staff, academia, governments, NGOs and Civil Society Organizations with the aim of creating synergies and sharing best practices on the need to harness the capacities of PTIs for enhanced governance in the 21st Century. This will be an excellent platform to examine past and current approaches to the role and mandates of PTIs with a view of identifying viable options to address the emerging challenges in capacity building for legislatures and embrace the available opportunities.
