Written on March, 2020
The ongoing debate surrounding the digital transformation of parliamentary systems highlights a complex interplay between technology, governance, and social factors. While much of the discourse has centred on the technological aspects, often overlooked is the role of cultural transformation. This essay aims to probe the deeper layers of cultural shifts that are implicit in the digitalisation of legislative bodies. These include the question of risk tolerance in different legislative areas, the evolution of traditional practices, and the generational challenges that arise in the transition.
