New technologies are changing how democracies around the world function. Such technologies present clear opportunities to make governance institutions more open and participatory, though they also expose governments and legislatures to a range of new challenges. During this session, parliamentary representatives will discuss how technology is changing democracy and the work of the legislature, paying particular attention to opportunities, challenges, and successes. Speakers will also provide an update on the work of the Legislative Openness Working Group in addressing these challenges.
