The World e-Parliament Conference 2008 took place at the European Parliament in Brussels on 25 and 26 November 2008. The World e-Parliament Conference 2008 represented a unique opportunity for leaders and members of parliaments, parliamentary officials and experts to exchange views at a global level on new technologies and innovation as tools to strengthen the representative, legislative and oversight functions of regional and national assemblies.
In recent years, parliaments have begun to exploit advances in information and communication technologies (ICT) to support their many functions and modernize their institutions. However, to date, there has not been an assessment on how these technologies are being employed across the array of activities for which a parliament is responsible.
The World e-Parliament Report 2008 represents a first effort to establish a baseline of how parliaments are using, or planning to use ICT to help them fulfill their responsibilities and to connect to their constituencies. The Report also provides an opportunity for sharing lessons learned and good practices from different regions of the world.
Between July and November 2007, the Global Centre conducted a worldwide survey on the use of ICT by legislatures. A questionnaire was sent to 263 chambers of unicameral and bicameral parliaments in 188 countries and to two regional parliaments. In total 105 assemblies responded to the survey: 48 unicameral, 56 bicameral and one regional.
