OpeningParliament.org

OpeningParliament.org is a forum intended to help connect the world's civic organizations engaged in monitoring, supporting and opening up their countries' parliaments and legislative institutions. It also serves as the home of the Declaration on Parliamentary Openness, a set of shared principles on the openness, transparency and accessibility of parliaments supported by more than 140 organizations from over 75 countries.

Both initiatives are the result of a global meeting of parliamentary monitoring organizations (PMOs) hosted by the National Democratic Institute, Sunlight Foundation, and Latin American Network for Legislative Transparency in Washington, D.C. in April 2012.
