CPC-Workshop C - A People’s Parliament: Accessibility through Innovation

10:00 AM, Wednesday 24 Aug 2022 (2 hours 30 minutes)

Where legislatures may have previously acted as bastions of traditions and norms, the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic dramatically accelerated transformations in parliamentary life. In many cases CPA Branches were required to undergo years of modernisation in a matter of weeks, if not instantaneously. There is now a question of whether this spirit of adaptation and innovation will continue in the medium to long-term.

This session will specifically look at innovations that can and have increased the accessibility of parliaments for those people the institution represents. The session will look to investigate links between parliamentary representation and the digital transition and at the pros and cons of virtual/hybrid approaches. The session will also take a holistic view of innovation and explore non-technological adaptations and approaches that have emerged during the pandemic and whether they will continue to endure.
