Parliamentary libraries and research services around the world play an important role in supporting the work of legislatures. However, the capacity of such services in parliaments across the world varies greatly; and for this reason they are increasingly a focus of programs to support and strengthen democratic institutions.

A recent report released in June this year by the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs provides an overview of the development of parliamentary research services in Central Europe and the West Balkans. Further information on the report, including good practice recommendations for legislative research services, can be found on the APLAP website.
