Open Parliament in the Age of Internet: Can people collaborate with Legislature in the legislative process?
This report focuses on study of cases concerning organizational, political and social aspects that interfere in the successes and challenges of some experiments in legislative digital democracy. It is the result of 4-years research on legislative e-democracy
in several parliaments throughout the world, supported by University of
State of Rio de Janeiro and the Ash Center for Democratic Governance
and Innovation from University of Harvard.
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 paper takes as its focus the use of new technologies, mostly web-based, by members of the devolved parliamentary legislature in Scotland. Members of Scotland’s devolved parliament make a novel case for analysis for two reasons.
