Supporting resilient and innovative parliaments

To remain relevant and deliver for the people, parliaments and parliamentarians need to be forward-looking, resilient, and able to adapt and manage risk, especially in a constantly changing environment.

How does the IPU support resilient and innovative parliaments?

The IPU’s Centre for Innovation in Parliament helps parliaments harness new technology and ways of working. It plays a pivotal role in supporting parliaments in learning from one another depending on what stage they are at in their development.

The IPU leverages its research, data and knowledge sharing with the aim of strengthening parliaments’ ability to absorb, evolve and innovate in the face of external shocks, and help manage emerging risks such as the impact of climate change.

The IPU also facilitates online learning exchanges with parliamentarians and parliamentary staff, creating opportunities for them to connect and exchange with experts and civil society.
