Virtual CPC: Parliamentary Responses to Countering Terrorism and Violent Extremism
In advance of the formal Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference (CPC) which is due to be held in August 2022 in Halifax, Canada, the CPA Headquarters Secretariat will be delivering a set of virtual workshops for Commonwealth Parliamentarians and parliamentary staff. Each workshop will bring together leading experts from private, public, academic, political, and international backgrounds.

Parliament plays a central role in preventing and countering terrorism and violent extremism. Across lawmaking, budgeting and oversight processes related to counter-terrorism, as well as representing citizens and working and with vulnerable communities and individuals. Parliaments can work to ensure governments comply with international obligations, and utilise parliamentary mechanisms scrutiny through committees, inquiries, and their public platform to hold the government to account and raise the profile of issues.

The session will be an interactive dialogue between Commonwealth parliamentarians intimately involved in policy and legislative responses to terrorism and violent extremism, as well as leading practioners in the field.
