The Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) World E-Parliament conference took place on December 3-5, 2018 bringing together over 250 parliamentarians and staff members from 64 countries. This year’s edition was focused on innovation and, more specifically, aimed at responding to key questions: how can technology supports innovation in the transformation of parliamentary processes; how it can act as a catalyst for modernization, culture change and for increasing transparency and enhancing representation. The Inter-Parliamentary Union is an organization made up of national parliaments from around the world, which aims to protect and build global democracy through political dialogue and concrete action.
The programme of the event was designed around panel discussions on technology related issues such as 'Artificial Intelligence' In Legislative Document Management and Embracing Cyber Resilience Through The Cloud. There were also a few sessions dedicated to collaboration with the civil society, such as Listening and Responding to Citizen Demands.
