The new edition of World e-Parliament Report was launched on 27 July. The Report analyses how the Covid-19 pandemic has acted as a catalyst for parliaments to adopt new working methods. It makes a series of recommendations for how parliaments can capitalize on this experience. Many parliaments have learned how to use new technology to improve the ways they interact with and inform their constituents. The report can be accessed online at: https://www.ipu.org/resources/publications/reports/2021-07/world-e-parliament-report-2020
Prepared by the IPU’s Centre for Innovation in Parliament, the report’s findings are based on a survey of 116 parliamentary chambers in 91 countries and focus groups involving 49 parliaments between 2018 and 2020. The report follows the IPU’s World e-Parliament Conference 2021 in June which brought together over 650 parliamentarians and parliamentary staff from around the world to share good practice and experiences.
IPU Innovation Tracker puts the spotlight of some of the good practices that parliaments shared in the Parliamentary Showcase at the recent World e-Parliament Conference. https://www.ipu.org/knowledge/ipu-innovation-tracker
