The Symbiosis of Democracy and Digitalisation: Redefining Parliamentary Interfaces for Universal Accessibility
Written on September, 2023
The emergence of digital platforms in legislative domains is not just a technological evolution but a democratic revolution. These interfaces serve as conduits for parliamentary functions and citizen engagement, therefore bearing the weight of democratising information and participation. In light of this, a multi-layered approach to the design and implementation of such platforms becomes a democratic imperative. This essay aims to critically examine the complexities of creating universally accessible parliamentary interfaces, focusing particularly on legislative frameworks, user experience, staff training, and the role of feedback and specialised units in continuous improvement.
