Will hybrid working become the “new normal” for parliaments?

Summary

The Covid-19 pandemic saw a period of “enforced innovation” in parliamentary working methods. Those parliaments that chose to innovate have dramatically changed how they function, embracing new technologies and remote working. The central objective of this event is to investigate if, why and how hybrid working is becoming the “new normal” for parliaments.

Participants will discuss the findings and recommendations of the World e-Parliament Report 2022. Parliamentarians will exchange perspectives on how hybrid working affects their work. They will consider how hybrid working impacts the legislative and oversight functions of parliament, and also to what extent hybrid working makes parliaments more modern, gender-sensitive and family-friendly workplaces. Participants will also share views on how to ensure the resilience of parliament in future emergencies.
