What will happen in your session?

In a 30min workshop, participants will learn how to work with parliamentary data (proceedings, videos, open data) in order to analyze, visualize and contextualize speeches held in different parliaments (using open-source tools). Based on an example project with the German Bundestag, we will discuss best practices and workflows, and present some funny insights into the peculiar world of public administrations and their relationship with open data.

Directly following, we will present an idea for a collaborative project on opening up parliamentary debates and take 20min to identify important challenges with the group.

Afterwards we will arrange in small groups (3-5 people) and take 30min to discuss the previously identified challenges. Outcomes will be documented and presented at the end.

What is the goal or outcome of your session?

We want to build up a community around this topic and this session is the kick-off. Our aim is to bring together people from various backgrounds (journalists, coders, political activists, social -and political scientists, librarians and archivists), who share the goal to fundamentally change the way we interact with video-based publications of political debates.

Our session is a call to action towards collaborating on generic open-source solutions, which can be integrated in different jurisdictions, languages, countries, parliamentary systems and technological environments.

If your session requires additional materials or electronic equipment, please outline your needs.

  • paper
