Each module in PARLINE covers a different aspect of the structure and working methods of parliament. Information for each module is normally provided for every parliamentary chamber. Please note that for some chambers, not all modules are available.
Use the Modules pages to view and export data for selected fields and selected countries. In this way, it is possible to compare various aspects of the different parliamentary systems. Up to five data fields in each module can be combined with geographical search criteria. Search results are displayed directly on the screen and can be exported directly into Microsoft® Excel or in comma-separated value (CSV) format.
In the example below, which is taken from the General information module, search results will display the names and structure of all parliaments that currently exist in Asia, with an indication of whether or not they are affiliated to the IPU, including the date of affiliation, if applicable.
Detailed indications on how to export PARLINE data are to be found on How to ... page.
