To mark this year’s International Day of Parliamentarism on 30 June, we are pleased to invite you to the "INTER PARES Live Stream: Parliaments’ response to the pandemic and the importance of oversight".

What democracy initiatives in response to the pandemic were introduced by the EU and International IDEA? How have parliaments around the world responded to the COVID-19 crisis? What measures were adopted to continue business? How did parliaments carry out their oversight role in the exceptional circumstances?

In order to answer these questions, we have conducted a global mapping of parliaments’ different responses to the coronavirus pandemic, collecting and comparing open-source data from over 150 parliaments around the world. During this event, we will preview our project on mapping parliaments’ responses to the pandemic and share our initial findings.
