The World e-Parliament Report 2012 presents the latest data on the use and availability of systems, applications, hardware and tools in parliaments all over the world. The findings presented in the report are based on the results of the Global Survey of ICT in Parliaments 2012 conducted by the Global Centre for ICT in Parliament between February and May 2012. Comparisons are offered in the 2008 and 2010 editions. The report provides readers with concrete examples of the adoption of ICT in the most significant areas of parliamentary business. The report is intended to be read in conjunction with the 2008 and 2010 reports.



Communication and engagement

Since the advent of newer generations of mobile networks, social media and multimedia platforms, parliaments have been increasingly experimenting with these technologies primarily for two purposes: a) to raise public awareness and understanding of the role of parliament in the country’s governance by informing citizens about its history, functions, processes and actions; and, b) to increase the participation of citizens in the law-making process by engaging them in consultations, hearings, committee work and polls through technology tools.
