Indicator: 3.2 Parliamentary communication and outreach

This indicator concerns the approach that parliament takes to institutional communication and outreach. Communicating with the public about what parliament does is a basic condition for people to be able to understand and even participate in parliamentary work.

Parliaments use a range of channels to inform and communicate with the public, including broadcasting, websites, social media and educational materials. They seek to ensure that parliamentary information is accessible to all groups in society, including rural communities and people without access to the internet.

Outreach to the public involves a mix of in-person and online activities. It implies creating opportunities for people to interact with parliament on the parliamentary premises, as well as where they live, in their time, on issues which they care about.
