Event Details

The National Democratic Institute, the Sunlight Foundation, and the Latin American Network on Legislative Transparency, as core partners in, a community of civic organizations dedicated to opening up parliamentary data, will co-host a three-hour pre-conference event at the International Open Data Conference in Ottawa to discuss emerging standards for parliamentary accountability, as well as the legislative data needed to monitor compliance with them.

The event will be held in Room 201 of the Shaw Centre from 2:00pm to 5:00pm on May 27.

We will showcase some of the relevant work around standards and norms on open parliaments, open politics and open data, including the introduction of discussion documents on standards on three specific topics:

1) Parliamentary Conduct and Ethics (presented by Scott Hubli and Greg Brown, National Democratic Institute)
2) Money, Politics and Transparency (presented by Lindsay Ferris, Sunlight Foundation)
3) Lobbying (presented by Daniel Freund, Transparency International EU)

The discussion will be co-moderated by Senator Hernán Larraín, chair of the Bicameral Commission on Transparency of the Congress of Chile, and Alisha Todd, director general of ParlAmericas.

A panel discussion and introduction of these new global standards will be followed by breakout sessions on each of the three topics. If you have any questions, please email Dan Swislow ( or Julia Keseru (
