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.



Advancing inter-parliamentary cooperation

While parliaments make efforts to capitalize on the advantages of information and communication technologies, there is no doubt that the next years will continue to be characterized by the growing penetration and pervasiveness of technology in all societies. Governing institutions such as legislatures will need to adapt to an evolving environment where social, economic and cultural components can be altered by the introduction of new devices, as is happening with the diffusion of tablets and smart phones; by the innovative use of technology, such as cloud computing and open data initiatives; or, by the integration of these developments by individuals and groups to generate political and social transformations.
