This event is part of Parliament Week (October 31 – November 6 2011), a week of planned events and activities which bring the story of Parliament to life and encourage greater engagement with democracy amongst people of all ages. The Hansard Society is particularly keen that the work of the Lords is recognised so we have organised this event, with the co-operation of the Lord Speaker, to throw light on the role that the Second Chamber plays in our democracy and how individual peers engage with the public (meetings, blogs, online forums, Twitter, Facebook etc).
When & Where
The Hansard Society is the UK's leading independent, non-partisan; political research and education charity.
We aim to strengthen parliamentary democracy and encourage greater public involvement in politics.At the heart of our work is the principle that civic society is most effective when its citizens are connected with the institutions and individuals who represent them in the democratic process. There has never been more urgency for Parliament to engage with the public.
