The World e-Parliament Conference 2009 took place at the U.S. House of Representatives in Washington, D.C., on 3, 4 and 5 November 2009. The conference was co-organized by the United Nations, the Inter-Parliamentary Union, the U.S. House of Representatives and the Global Centre for ICT in Parliament. The conference built on the outcome of the second World e-Parliament Conference held at the European Parliament in Brussels in 2008, as well as on the findings of the World e Parliament Report 2008.
