New media platforms are changing how people communicate with each other around the world. However, there is great variation in both the kind of communication platforms people make use of as well as in how they access these platforms. Computer ownership and internet access are still the prerogative of the wealthy few in wide swathes of the African continent. All the same, mobile internet access is on the rise and if current growth rates continue, African mobile phone penetration will reach 100 per cent by 2014.
Strengthening trust between parliaments and the people: the role of information and communication technologies
Time slot:16:30 - 18:00
As noted at the Third World Conference of Speakers of Parliament, sponsored by the Inter-Parliamentary Union in 2010, citizens have delegated power to parliaments to represent them, a mandate that is based on public confidence. Parliamentarians therefore have a responsibility to account to their electorate on the way that mandate is exercised. Yet in old and new democracies alike, public trust is often low in parliaments, political parties and indeed the entire political system.
