The Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow MP, attended the World e-Parliament Conference 2014 along with fellow Digital Demcoracy Commissioners Meg Hiller MP and Robert Halfon MP.
The Conference is the biennial forum of the community of parliaments on their use of information and communication technologies (ICT). It addresses, from both the policy and technical perspectives, how ICT can help improve representation, law-making and oversight and increase parliaments' openness, accessibility, accountability and effectiveness. The first World e-Parliament Conference was held in Geneva 2007. Since then four conferences and three Global Reports have tracked progress and shared good practices in the use of ICT by parliaments.
The UK Parliament is generally regarded as one of the world leaders in the use of social media for promoting engagement with the public.
During the conference, Mr Speaker gave a speech on the work of his Commission on Digital Democracy.
