Each year we send a number of UK Parliamentarians on short-term placements with our partners in Africa and Asia. Parliamentarians use their unique background and expertise to help our international partners strengthen their advocacy and campaigns, influence national policies and support the capacity of elected representatives.
On their return, by applying their experience to their parliamentary work, parliamentarians can increase wider understanding of international development issues and support improvements in the lives of the world’s poor.
Placements last for approximately two weeks and take place during recess. These placements provide an opportunity to work with local people on issues of importance to them. Each placement is carefully designed to contribute to a wider development strategy for the participating country.
