Best Practices and Knowledge Sharing

European Centre for Parliamentary Research and Documentation (ECPRD)

Since it was first established at the request of the speakers of European Parliamentary Assemblies in June 1977, the European Centre for Parliamentary Research & Documentation (ECPRD) has been a useful tool for inter-parliamentary cooperation and information exchange. The data generated by the Centre’s members is extensive and specific information can be hard to track down. Bringing together the information, facilitating the exchange of ideas and making the retrieval of data and the circulation of studies easier is the Centre’s role.

Directrices para sitios web parlamentarios

En el año 2000, la Unión Interparlamentaria (UIP) publicó sus Directrices para el contenido y la estructura de sitios web parlamentarios. A finales de 2008, y en consulta con la UIP, el Centro Global para TIC en los Parlamentos, emprendió la tarea de actualizar las Directrices a fin de que reflejaran los avances de la tecnología y las nuevas prácticas introducidas en los parlamentos en los últimos años. Al igual que en el caso de las Directrices 2000, con el presente documento, Directrices para sitios web parlamentarios, se procura dar recomendaciones prácticas que faciliten la tarea de planificar y supervisar los sitios web, así como lograr que los parlamentos den consignas concretas a los diseñadores, promotores y administradores de los mismos.

Principes directeurs relatifs aux sites web parlementaires

En 2000, l’Union interparlementaire (UIP) publiait ses Principes directeurs relatifs au contenu et à la structure des sites web parlementaires. Fin 2008, le Centre mondial pour les TIC au Parlement a entrepris, en accord avec l’UIP, de mettre à jour les Principes directeurs afin de rendre compte des progrès de la technique et des nouvelles pratiques apparues ces dernières années dans les parlements. Comme les Principes directeurs publiés en 2000, le présent document - Principes directeurs relatifs aux sites web parlementaires - a pour objet de proposer des recommandations pratiques destinées à faciliter le travail d’élaboration et de supervision des sites web et d’aider les parlements à donner des indications concrètes aux personnes chargées de la conception, de l’élaboration et de la gestion de leurs sites web.

Guidelines for Parliamentary Websites

In 2000 the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) published Guidelines for the Content and Structure of Parliamentary Websites. In late 2008, the Global Centre for ICT in Parliament, in consultation with the IPU, undertook the task of updating the Guidelines to reflect advances in technology and new practices in parliaments that have emerged in the last several years. As with the 2000 Guidelines, the Guidelines for Parliamentary Websites are intended to provide recommendations that are practically oriented to facilitate the task of planning and overseeing websites and to enable parliaments to provide concrete guidance to their website designers, developers and managers.

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.
