The Parliamentary Forum ICT and the Global Economic Crisis: Current Situation and Future Perspectives is the third meeting of members of parliament focusing on issues relating to the Information Society, organized within the framework of the Global Centre for ICT in Parliament. The aim of the Forum series is to further dialogue among legislators on parliamentary actions that can contribute to the shaping of the future Information Society in view of the WSIS implementation, follow-up and future 2015 review.

The third meeting will focus on the role that ICT can play in confronting the global economic crisis and facilitating economic and social recovery. It follows a Parliamentary Conference on the Global Economic Crisis organized by IPU in May 2009.

The Parliamentary Forum expects to attract members of parliament with responsibilities for Information Society issues from all over the world. It is expected that the Chairs of parliamentary committees with responsibility for ICT and/or committees on economic affairs will lead the delegations and participate actively in the debates with peers from other countries and regions.

The Forum will take place on 3-5 May 2010 at the Headquarters of the International Telecommunication Union in Geneva, at Room B ITU Tower.
