World e-Parliament Conference
The World e-Parliament Conference is the biennial forum of the community of parliaments addressing, from both the policy and technical perspectives, how the use of information and communication technology can help improve representation, transparency, accountability, openness, and effectiveness in the complex parliamentary environment.
At the conference, presiding officers and members of parliaments, secretaries-general, parliamentary staff and officials, experts from international organizations and academics who work and deal with information and communication technologies in legislatures will have the opportunity to analyze good practices, exchange views on latest trends and institutional developments, learn from each other’s experiences, network with peers, and build partnerships in an international setting.
The conference will conclude on the International Day of Democracy 2012.
The event is co-organized by the United Nations and the Inter-Parliamentary Union, through the Global Centre for ICT in Parliament, and hosted by the Chamber of Deputies of Italy.
