The Parliamentary Initiatives Network (PIN) is a forum for non-state actors in Kenya with a programmatic interest in Parliament. PIN brings together a number of CSOs including professional associations, think tanks and research institutions that focus on affecting Parliamentary business from a technical perspective.
Members collectively and individually commit themselves, to provide a coordinated framework for civil society organizations to support the Kenya National Assembly in reviewing proposed policies and drafting legislation. More specifically, the mandate extends- but is not limited -to providing information and research support to the National Assembly, its committees and Members in the areas of oversight, legislative and representation roles as well as designing tools to help the Assembly systematically monitor and track the implementation of decisions, policies and laws that it has made, as well as, enhance the institutional capacity of parliament generally.
The office of the State University of New York Parliamentary Support Programme in Kenya (SUNY Kenya) is the general secretariat for PIN but Network members may provide specific secretariat/activity coordinating unit support to discrete activities and events. The Secretariat may be changed by the Network Members on a recommendation by a Member.
The Network's membership is voluntary and generally accessible subject to formal application and approval by current members.
