The Labour Party conference was not only a fascinating week for British people interested in politics but attracted a wide range of visitors from "sister" parties across the world. Some came from long-standing democratic nations such as Australia, New Zealand and Canada. Other visitors came from emerging democracies such as Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro and Morocco who were taking part in a programme organised by the Westminster Foundation for Democracy.

 

Meg is currently Vice-Chair of the Westminster Foundation for Democracy which was established in 1992 to promote democracy, mainly in Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa. It is a cross-party political organisation that provides funds, supports projects and arranges training in the nuts and bolts of establishing and keeping democratic forms of government.

 

Meg said:

 

"Politics is international and the interest of our friends around the world was very evident at our conference. It is a great opportunity to discuss democratic policies with visitors from political parties who share our views, particularly those who engaged in building new democracies.

 

It was encouraging to see participants from countries that were recently at war with each other sitting and talking of what they can do together. We also had visitors from countries such as Iran where they are still struggling for democracy."
