Rapport mondial 2008 sur l’e-Parlement

Le Rapport mondial 2008 sur l’e-Parlement représente un premier effort pour établir une base de référence sur la manière dont les parlements utilisent, ou prévoient d’utiliser les TIC pour les aider à to remplir leurs responsabilités et à se connecter avec leurs électorats. Le Rapport présente également une opportunité de partager les leçons et bonnes pratiques de différentes regions.
Le Rapport est basé sur les réponses et commentaires fournis par 105 assemblées dans le monde en réponse à une enquête sur l’utilisation des TIC au parlement entre Juillet et Septembre 2007. Il s’appuie aussi sur les échanges d’expérience lors de la Conference mondiale 2007 sur l’e-Parlement et les informations pertinentes disponibles publiquement.
Le Rapport est une production conjointe de UNDESA et l’Union Interparlementaire, préparé dans le cadre des activités du Centre mondial pour les TIC au Parlement.

World e-Parliament Report 2008

In recent years, parliaments have begun to exploit advances in information and communication technologies (ICT) to support their many functions and modernize their institutions. However, to date, there has not been an assessment on how these technologies are being employed across the array of activities for which a parliament is responsible.

The World e-Parliament Report 2008 represents a first effort to establish a baseline of how parliaments are using, or planning to use ICT to help them fulfill their responsibilities and to connect to their constituencies. The Report also provides an opportunity for sharing lessons learned and good practices from different regions of the world.
