Numerous actors in civil society and in the parliamentary community have drafted and adopted standards related to parliamentary transparency, including the Declaration on Parliamentary Openness and the Santiago Declaration. A number of new standards documents—on issues like parliamentary ethics and codes of conduct and lobbying—are being launched at the end of 2015. This session will discuss how these standards frameworks fit together and how they can be used to advance parliamentary openness and support the Open Government Partnership. These standards were an element of this year’s Global Legislative Openness Week (GLOW) campaign, which ran from September 7-September 15, 2015, coordinated by the Legislative Openness Working Group.
