CAPE regularly organises series of seminars and workshops on civic issues and for capacity building. While these events are intended mainly for students, most are also open to members of the public.

Working with a diverse range of key actors in Singapore politics, academia and civil society, our signature Political Processes and Constitutional Liberties series in the past two years, have explored a wide range of civic issues such as the workings of the Singaporean Parliament, international human rights advocacy, and issues of the 2017 Reserved Presidency and the history of the presidency.
