The World e-Parliament Conference is the annual forum of the community of parliaments addressing, from both the policy and technical perspectives, how the use of information and communication technology can help improve representation, transparency, accountability, openness, and effectiveness in the complex parliamentary environment. The plenary of the Conference will this year emphasize the relations between parliaments and media in light of the advent of new technologies. The conference will also build on the findings of the World e-Parliament Report 2010.

The 2010 event is co-organized by the United Nations, the Inter-Parliamentary Union, the Parliament of South Africa, the Pan-African Parliament and the Global Centre for ICT in Parliament
