Ingrid Walker

Programme Manager, INTER PARES

Ingrid Walker is the Programme Manager for INTER PARES | Parliaments in Partnership - EU Global Project to Strengthen the Capacity of Parliaments since January 2023.

Walker has been with INTER PARES since July 2019, most recently as the Senior Programme Officer for INTER PARES Phase I. During this time, she has assumed a wide range of responsibilities including coordination of the INTER PARES flagship peer-to-peer partnerships between European Union Member State Parliaments and Partner Parliaments around the world, as well as managing monitoring and evaluation processes and leading the communications strategy implementation.

In her new role as the Programme Manager, additional responsibilities include management of staff, donor coordination, as well as of the overall design and production of the project’s knowledge resources, providing technical expertise and coordinating project strategy on cross-cutting initiatives, such as youth, gender equality, and anticipatory governance to foster parliamentary inclusivity and effectiveness.

Walker’s previous work experience includes working as a Senior Policy Advisor in the European Parliament, with a special focus on the Development and Foreign Affairs committees. In her capacity as a policy advisor, she led two major legislative proposals, which were both adopted by the Parliament plenary: on the role of the private sector in development, and land tenure security and property rights.

INTER PARES II, funded by the European Union and running from January 2023 to December 2025, is the EU’s flagship project to enhance the capacities of parliaments as a cornerstone of effective representative democracy, building on the achievements and lessons learned from the first phase of INTER PARES, which ran from January 2019 to December 2022.
