The United Nations and the Inter-Parliamentary Union have released the World e-Parliament Report 2010. The Report, prepared by the Global Centre for ICT in Parliament, intends to help legislatures to harness the potential benefits of ICT for their work and establish key goals and priorities for exploiting this valuable resource. While providing evidence of the complexities of e-parliament, the report suggests ways to overcome some of the obstacles to the effective use of technology in parliamentary settings. The findings are based on the results of the Global Survey of ICT in Parliaments conducted between July and November 2009, to which 134 parliamentary assemblies responded.
