The IBA Human Rights Institute (IBAHRI) and The Westminster Consortium for Parliaments and Democracy (TWC) held a two-day workshop in March 2011 on human rights and the role of parliaments, as part of their joint initiative on parliamentary strengthening.
The event was attended by parliamentarians and staff from a variety of European, Asian and African countries and marked the release of the IBA/TWC handbook, Human Rights and Parliaments.
During the course of the workshop the IBA interviewed many top parliamentarians and other attendees from around the world about challenges facing their respective countries. Below we present a selection of clips from these interviews.
