Under this Programme area, CEPA with Support from Governance, Accountability, Participation and Performance (GAPP) Programme, has been working in close collaboration with key Parliamentary stakeholders such as, the three (3) accountability committees, the office of the Speaker of Parliament, Office of the Clerk to Parliament and the Institute of Parliamentary Studies (IPS) in matters related to capacity building of accountability committees.
Through its Parliament Watch Initiative and in close collaboration with the Uganda Parliamentary Press Association and other Civil Society actors, CEPA will popularize the OAG reports and Parliamentary proceedings on the consideration of reports under the citizens dialoguing and engagement component. The last approach under this program includes advocacy for practice and legal reform advocacy and policy engagement, where CEPA works with the Parliamentary Commission, Ministry of Local Government and other actors to ensure legal review of the laws related to the accountability cycle
The Parliamentary Human Right Programme intended to support Parliament’s responsive legal and institutional mechanisms that ensure that the state upholds, protects and promotes fundamental and other human rights and freedoms in the country.
The programme principally targets Parliament’s Committee on Human Rights Affairs, whose mandate is to ensure that business handled by the committee is subjected to the human rights checklist and that Parliament promptly and openly responds to emerging human rights issues within the public arena. The programme will also target other parliamentary committees, the Uganda Human Rights Commission, civil society and specific citizen interest groups with human rights concerns.
Policy Garage is a program run by the Centre for Policy Analysis with Support from Friedrich Ebert Stiftung. It is a series of digital, short pre-recorded video dialogues that address numerous policy issues affecting women in Uganda. These videos run for five minutes and disseminated widely on social media platforms. They provide important insights that steer policy conversations on the issue at hand.
