Open Parliament TV
We make parliamentary debates more transparent and accessible
Check out our search engine and interactive video platform with data by the German Bundestag:
With Open Parliament TV we build up trust in parliamentary democracy, by making political decision processes more transparent, trustworthy and participatory.
Videos recordings of parliamentary debates hold great untapped potential for digital democracy. They are more tangible than text documents or lists of votes and provide an easily accessible “window“ to the underlying discussions, negotiations and decisions.
We want to use this potential by
- creating a joint technological basis for parliaments (interoperable standards, interfaces and document formats) as well as
- developing a search engine and interactive video platform, in which speeches are searchable, linkable, citable and sharable via a synchronisation of videos and proceedings.
