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.

The Module on Parliamentary Democracy is the first in a series of modules on various aspects of democratic governance. It has been developed by the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association in partnership with Athabasca University: Canada's Open University
