The in-person segment of the Fifth World Conference of Speakers of Parliament will be held in Vienna, Austria on 7-8 September. The conference will be preceded by the Summit of Women Speakers of Parliament on 6 September.
Organized jointly by the IPU and the Austrian Parliament, in cooperation with the United Nations, the second part of the conference will be designed to ensure as much inclusivity as possible depending on the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic. Measures will be put in place to allow engagement by those Speakers of Parliament who may not be able to attend due to travel restrictions.
The first part of the Fifth World Conference of Speakers of Parliament took place virtually on 19 and 20 August 2020.
Speakers of Parliament who are interested will also be invited to stay on for a Summit on Countering Terrorism and Violent Extremism, to be convened jointly by the IPU and United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime on 9 September.
