CURRENT EVENTS

Amanda Riley has successful organised and administrated the Wroxton Workshop of Parliamentary Scholars and Parliamentarians for the last 6 years, welcoming delegates from over 30 countries. AR is also responsible for the administration and on-going development of the new Centre for Legislative Studies, chaired by Lord Norton, and is currently organising several specialist events in The House of Lords.

ARLS’s Legislative Drafting skills are sought after by Parliaments from around the world. Two current projects in development relate to establishing a Parliamentary Workshop and Legislative Drafting Training Programme in the Gulf States, and a Legislative Drafting Training Course for the Pakistan Parliament, to be hosted in Dubai.

Future training courses are being developed to assist Landlords and Rental Property Agencies with regards the succesful delivery and implementation of section 8 & section 21 notices.

CURRENT PROJECTS

WROXTON WORKSHOP OF PARLIAMENTARY SCHOLARS AND PARLIAMENTARIANS

The Wroxton Workshop of Parliamentary Scholars and Parliamentarians is organised and administrated by ARLS. It serves to enable scholars to present research likely to be of practical interest to parliamentarians and for participants to engage in a dialogue that enables each to learn from the other.  The 15th Workshop, held on 30-31 July 2022, richly fulfilled its purpose, drawing academics and practitioners from 26 nations and international organisations.  ARLS welcomed parliamentarians from nations ranging from the Maldives to Mongolia, with notable delegations from Africa, Asia and the Middle East.  The Workshop was not only the most diverse in the history of the Workshops, but also probably the most successful. ARLS looks forward to welcoming both researchers and members of parliaments, as well as parliamentary staff, to the 16th Workshop, taking place at Wroxton on 27/28 July 2024.

CENTRE FOR LEGISLATIVE STUDIES

The Centre for Legislative Studies (C4LS) is chaired by Lord Norton with ARLS tasked with the web site design, administration, and organisation of C4LS events. C4LS encourages comparative as well as country-specific research, empirical as well as theory-driven studies, and relies on no single disciplinary approach.  It serves to facilitate and disseminate research through seminars, conferences, and publications. The Journal of Legislative Studies, one of the two major international refereed journals in the sub-discipline, is edited in the Centre, as is the Routledge Library of Legislative Studies.  The Centre also liaises and co-operates with similar centres and research bodies in different nations in order to advance understanding of legislatures as core actors in the modern state. C4LS welcomes expressions of interest from both scholars and practitioners from around the globe.

 

RESTORING PUBLIC TRUST IN PARLIAMENT

MONDAY 12 SEPTEMBER 2022 – THE RIVER ROOM – HOUSE OF LORDS

Parliament is suffering from a lack of public trust.  Polls in recent years have been fairly consistent in showing that only about a third of those questioned believe that Parliament is doing a good job and have confidence in MPs to act in the public interest. A poll found that only 12% of those questioned thought that the House of Lords does a good job.  The process of nominating peers has been widely lambasted. Parliament has difficulty in countering criticism. It suffers from the fact that people often have difficulty distinguishing Government from Parliament.  If Government is unpopular, it affects attitudes towards Parliament. ARLS in conjunction with Lord Norton and the Centre for Legislative Studies are organising an event on Monday 12th September in the House of Lords to address what can be done to restore public trust in Parliament. Other key note events are scheduled to follow.
