Parliamentary Institute of Cambodia

Parliamentary Institute of Cambodia, Preah Norodom Boulevard (41), Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Description

The Parliamentary Institute of Cambodia was founded in 2011 at the request of the Cambodian Parliament. Its fundamental aim is to support capacity strengthening among Parliamentarians and parliamentary staff and to help the Cambodian Parliament in its aspirations to meet the internationally-recognized standards required of a democratic parliament in the 21st century.

PIC is independently run and funded, adheres to a policy of strict neutrality and is demand-driven so that it can fully align its activities to those of the Parliament. Capacity strengthening is at the core of PIC’s activities, and services include training, workshops, seminars and internships, as well as support for outreach activities such as expert hearings, public consultations and national and international fact finding and study missions.

There is a particular emphasis strengthening the research skills of parliamentary staff, some of whom take year-long internships with PIC while they learn-by-doing. The emphasis has always been on building the skills of parliamentary staff while producing the research information to guide Parliamentarians in pursuing their legislation function. Other capacity strengthening topics include English, parliamentary communications and legal drafting.

In helping to strengthen the Cambodian Parliament, PIC draws on the expertise of national, regional and international partners including parliamentary organizations in other parts of the world.

 It has two mandates:

  • To contribute to the strengthening of the Cambodian Parliament through the capacity development of its members and parliamentary staff; and
  • to share its experiences with others and other parliaments in the region and beyond.
