The school provided knowledge of the most significant ICT standards emerging for legislation, judiciary, parliamentary and administrative documents. The course provided an understanding of their impact in the different phases of the legislative and administrative process, awareness of the tools based on legal XML standards and their constellations, and the ability to participate in the preparation and use of standard-compliant documents throughout law-making process.
In 2008 and 2010, the United Nations and the Inter-Parliamentary Union, through the Global Centre for ICT in Parliament, jointly published the first and second edition of the World e-Parliament Report.
The Reports, prepared by the Global Centre for ICT in Parliament, intend to help legislatures to harness the potential benefits of ICT for their work and establish key goals and priorities for exploiting this valuable resource. While providing evidence of the complexities of e-parliament, the Reports suggest ways to overcome some of the obstacles to the effective use of technology in parliamentary settings.
This handbook, published by the Council of Europe, is written for governments and organisations considering whether or not to conduct eVoting pilot schemes and trials or to make eVoting a feature of their electoral system. It reviews relevant issues such as building and safeguarding trust in the system, the value of open-source software and the implications of a voter verifiable audit paper trail. Concrete eVoting issues are discussed in the framework of the electoral cycle.
Questionnaire on Technological Options for Capturing and Reporting Plenary and Committee Sessions in Parliament
There is a general lack of knowledge regarding the range of technologies being used for capturing and reporting parliamentary proceedings; the benefits and drawbacks of each approach; the appropriateness of each technology in a specific context, taking into account differences in income level, language and culture among countries; and the opportunities for bi-lateral or multi-lateral cooperation that exist, regardless of the development level of each parliament.

Plusieurs parlements ont introduit un certain nombre de technologies directement dans la salle plénière. Le Rapport mondial 2010 sur l’e-Parlement a constaté, par exemple, que 81% des parlements ont, ou le prévoient et envisagent, un système de vote électronique pour les séances plénières. Le mode primaire d’identification est une carte ou un jeton (58%) ; les autres, actuellement utilisés par beaucoup moins de parlements, incluent la biométrie, l'emplacement du siège de chaque parlementaire et les mots de passe. Quatre législatures ont indiqué qu'ils utilisent deux méthodes.

The preservation of the parliamentary records in multiple formats poses important concerns, especially because of the need for effective policies, sound management practices, and the capacity to accommodate constantly evolving technologies. Different organizations within a parliament may have overlapping responsibilities for managing, distributing, and preserving its records, and it can sometimes be difficult to reconcile competing mandates. Potential conflicts may need to be resolved by the Secretary General or occasionally by higher authorities.
