Seminars

Since the launch of the International Parliament Engagement Network (IPEN) in March 2020, we’ve held a very popular seminar series for members of the network. These seminars spotlight different types of engagement initiatives from around the world and associated research and they are held on IPEN’s MS Teams home.

In May 2022, IPEN started to co-host the global Public Engagement Hub of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU), in partnership with its Centre for Innovation in Parliament (CIP). Through the Hub, we co-organise monthly webinars, which are hosted on Zoom and open to wider audiences with an interest in public engagement with parliaments.

Below you’ll find a list of upcoming and past seminars.
