Welcome to the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association's Module on Parliamentary Democracy. The
Association's aim in developing this module is to foster knowledge and a better understanding of the history, principles
and practices of the Westminster model of parliamentary democracy, in the context of other democratic models of
governance. It is hoped that the result among members of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association will be a
heightened awareness of issues affecting the evolution and future of parliamentary democracy.
