About the ParlAmericas. Written on September, 2021
Parliamentary diplomacy is a crucial element in today's globalised political arena. Its significance has been magnified by the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic and the consequent accelerated adoption of digital technology in the realm of international relations. A paradigmatic case of this digital adaptation is represented by ParlAmericas, an organisation which promotes parliamentary diplomacy across the Americas. This essay aims to analyse how ParlAmericas utilises modern digital tools to foster inter parliamentary collaboration, networking, and exchange of best practices, thereby setting a new paradigm for parliamentary diplomacy.
