The Common Principles for Support to Parliaments set out the basis for support to parliaments by providing a development framework for the work of parliaments, support bodies and practitioners.
In recent years, it has been suggested that a guide, giving detailed practical expression to the Common Principles, would be useful. How might parliaments create the conditions for their development? What relations between parliaments and external partners are likely to produce sustainable development outcomes?
This Guide seeks to fulfil that purpose. It suggests answers to these and similar questions, and provides practical guidance to parliaments seeking to quicken their pace of development.
