The Summer Program on “Parliamentary democracy in Europe” and the Jean Monnet module associated to it apply research-based knowledge and professional expertise to the actual contexts where Parliaments in Europe and beyond are taking advantage of new information and communication technologies while seeing their procedures and activities substantially reshaped as a consequence of the digital revolution. It aims to explore the tension between representative democracy, e-democracy and privacy and security concerns when it comes to apply the standard of “Open Parliaments” to contemporary legislatures.
This Summer Program has been awarded as a Jean Monnet module on “Parliamentary accountability and technical expertise: budgetary powers, information and communication technologies and elections (PATEU)” co-financed by the European Commission (3nd year). Previously it was a awarded as a Jean Monnet Module from 2013 to 2015 and in 2015 was chosen as the winner of the PADEMIA teaching award.
