Indicator: 3.3 Access to parliament

This indicator concerns physical access for the public, persons with disabilities and the media to the proceedings of parliament, wherever they take place. It covers access to all parliamentary venues, such as the parliamentary building, the plenary chamber(s) and committee meeting rooms, including for persons with disabilities, as well as to events organized on or off the parliamentary premises.

Physical access to parliament is an important democratic principle. Nevertheless, parliament sometimes has to carefully balance the principle of access with other legitimate concerns, such as security and public health.
