The Parliamentary Institute of Cambodia was founded in 2011 at the request of members of the Cambodian Parliament and its General Secretariats. 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.
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.
The Parliamentary Institute of Cambodia (PIC) hosted the “Regional Training of Trainers Program”, an online workshop conducted from 30 November to 4 December 2020, delivered in cooperation with the University of Sussex Department of Education. The participants were staff from ASEAN Inter-parliamentary Assembly (AIPA) Member Parliaments, including Myanmar, Cambodia, the Philippines and Thailand, who had previously completed PIC training programs.
