International Parliamentary Governance

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

Meg Munn MP recently chaired a session of the ‘International Parliamentary Governance’ conference hosted by the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association. The session was entitled ‘Engagement and Representation with particular reference to Women and Young People’. The seminar aims to contribute to a greater understanding of the principles and structures of governance in parliamentary democracies and included representatives from around the Commonwealth.

 

Speakers at the session were Senator Joan Fraser, from Canada, who sets out the steps that they had taken to ensure more women stood for elected positions. The Honourable Jermaine Wade described his journey into politics through the Montserrat Youth Parliament where young people learn about democracy. A lively discussion followed the two presentations.

 

Meg commented:

 

“Seminars of this nature encourage elected representatives to learn from the experiences of other countries in the Commonwealth. We know that there is no one perfect democracy, but discussing initiatives to ensure both genders and young people are engaged in democratic processes should assist to get better representation and therefore better governance.”
