The World e-Parliament Conference, co-organized by the IPU and the Chamber of Deputies of Chile - in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the National Democratic Institute (NDI), was held from 28-30 June in Valparaiso at the Chamber of Deputies.
The Conference featured the launch of the World e-Parliament Report 2016 and discussion of its key findings. During the conference, policy and technical tracks provided a forum for participants to exchange experiences on how ICT helps to improve representation, law-making and oversight, and to increase parliament’s openness, accessibility, accountability and effectiveness.
This latest edition of the World e-Parliament Report follows up on previous findings and identifies major steps forward in how parliaments are using information and communication technologies (ICT) to engage with citizens. According to the report, ICT can have a transformative effect in making parliaments more transparent and accessible, but warns that much more remains to be done and highlights that low income countries are struggling to devote sufficient resources to the task. Parliaments from 88 countries and 33 civil society organizations contributed to the report’s findings.
