International Day of Parliamentarism
Event Date: 30 Jun 2022
Event Location: Virtual

The International Day of Parliamentarism is a time to review the progress that parliaments have made in achieving some key goals to be more representative and move with the times, including carrying out self-assessments, working to include more women and young MPs, and adapting to new technologies.

The day is celebrated every year on 30 June, the date in 1889 on which the IPU was founded. The Day was established in 2018 through a United Nations General Assembly Resolution (A/RES/72/278), in which it recognised the role of parliaments in national plans and strategies and in ensuring greater transparency and accountability at national and global levels.
