INTER PARES: COVID-19 Pandemic Parliamentary Responses – Data Tracker


INTER PARES Parliamentary responses during the COVID-19 Pandemic – Data Tracker

The COVID-19 Pandemic severely affected parliaments along with all other governance institutions. Parliaments have had to balance continuing to assume their constitutional responsibilities to ensure democratic governance continuity, enacting and carefully overseeing special executive powers to combat the virus, setting an example in terms of safe working practices, and protecting the health of parliamentarians, staff, and other visitors to parliamentary buildings.

The INTER PARES team (Lead researcher of data tracker: Laura Mancilla) has conducted a global mapping of parliaments’ different responses to the coronavirus pandemic, collecting and comparing open-source data from 166 parliaments around the world from February to June 15, 2020.
