  1. Why regional and international convention and treaties increasingly matter;
  2. The breadth and depth of the conventions and treaties;
  3. How does it impact on the country’s law;
  4. Comparative perspective of how other Parliament deal with it; and 
  5. Role of Parliament in ratifying the conventions and treaties.

There has been growing importance of conventions and treaties in the increasingly interdependent world and how and why conventions and treaties have increasingly impacted the lives of individuals and the country itself. The third Parliaments has ratified several agreements and conventions. 

The workshop has been a good reflection and strategizing on how Parliaments can have a scrutiny role in ratifying conventions and agreements and provide valuable input in its formulation.
