GPG has been working with parliaments, parties, politicians and staff in countries throughout the Middle East and Africa, and beyond since 2006. Our work typically seeks to strengthen parliaments by making them more effective in their core tasks, and by supporting the process of reform.
In recent years our work has extended to working with the Executive and decentralised tiers of government in a number of countries.
In addition, we have conducted political economy analyses and strategic evaluations for a variety of other international organisations and funders, helping them to make their own projects more effective.
The countries in which we work are often characterised by conflict, division and instability. Political assistance in such environments is particularly sensitive and for that reason, every piece of work is developed with our partners in that country – politicians, parties, ministers and officials.
Our objective is to help each of them become more effective in doing their job. We provide support and expert advice to them on issues of strategy, organisation and process. But, ultimately, it is for our partners to decide on how best to implement them.
The list of projects below is not exhaustive, but provides a sense of the work that we undertake.
