Launch of the Indicators for Democratic Parliaments

Session 1:  Tuesday, 21 November 2023, 10:00–11:30 CET (interpretation in English, French and Arabic)

Session 2: Wednesday, 22 November 2023, 16:00–17:30 CET (interpretation in English and Spanish)  

Parliaments, partners, civil society organizations and all interested parties are warmly invited to join the official launch of the Indicators for Democratic Parliaments

The Indicators are a tool for institutional development that offers a new approach to measuring parliamentary capacity and performance. They are designed to support an evidence-based “health check” of parliaments and to help them to identify weak points or areas for improvement.

The launch event will present the purpose and content of the Indicators, as well as how they can be used to assess parliamentary capacity and performance. 

The Indicators for Democratic Parliaments are a multi-partner initiative led by the Inter-Parliamentary Union, in partnership with the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association, Directorio Legislativo Foundation, INTER PARES/International IDEA, the National Democratic Institute, the United Nations Development Programme, UN Women and the Westminster Foundation for Democracy.

More information about the Indicators can be found on the dedicated website:

The launch event will be held online. The two sessions will have the same content but will take place at different times in order to enable participants in different time zones to attend. Participants can indicate which session they wish to join in the registration form.
