Membership

How do I become a member of the Network?

If you are an active member of parliament, or a parliamentary official, please write to us - using your official parliamentary email address - to express your interest in joining the Network. Once your request has been validated by the team, your name will be added to our contacts database which will confirm your membership. You will then automatically receive notifications of our upcoming meetings as long as you are still active in this post.

How can I share an initiative of my parliament with the OECD and/or with fellow members of the Network?

This is the very purpose of the Network, so contact us at [email protected].

Meetings

How do I participate in a meeting?

If you are an active member of parliament, or a parliamentary official, and have written to us requesting to become a member of the Network and the request has already been validated by the team, you can attend our meetings. No journalists are accepted.

Will OECD pay for my trip?

We are unable to cover any travel or accommodation costs and ask that participants take care of any travel arrangements themselves. Browse the list of hotels close to the OECD.    

Is there a limit to how many members of parliament can attend from each country?

There's no limit in absolute terms, as Global Parliamentary Network meetings are open to all active members of parliament and parliamentary officials.

Which languages are interpreted during a meeting?

OECD provides interpretation in its official languages - English and French. For other languages: several delegations usually make arrangements for their interpreters in liaison with the OECD’s interpretation team. If you require interpretation into other languages, please contact [email protected].

Do you prepare a summary after each meeting?

We do not provide any public report. However, you will find the Speakers’ presentations available on that meeting's webpage, along with links to the OECD’s work on topics covered that day.

How do I cancel my attendance to a meeting?

If you are unable to participate, kindly write to us at [email protected]. Please note that, as you will still be part of our parliamentary contact list, you will continue to receive invitations to our future meetings. 

Registration

How do I register?

If you are an active member of parliament, or a parliamentary official, and are already part of our Network, you will receive a link to register. Please fill out all the required information, attach your photo and add a brief biography that will feature on the Global Parliamentary Network “Who’s who” webpage. We will confirm your participation as soon as possible.

If you would like to become a member of the Network, see 'Membership' section above.  

I have not received my registration link. What can I do?

Please kindly check your Spam folder. If you cannot find the e-mail, please write to us specifying your issue and we will then re-send you the registration e-mail link.

How do I register several participants?

If you are responsible for registering several parliamentarians, you can do so by using the registration link provided to Members for each meeting.

Important to note: one unique e-mail address per participant is obligatory for security purposes. Each participant will then receive an individual confirmation once their participation has been accepted.

If you are registering multiple participants, you will need to refresh your browser before opening the registration link for the next participant.

OECD work

Would you like to learn more about OECD work on a specific topic?

Send an e-mail to [email protected] and we will do our best to provide the latest OECD research and access to our team of experts.

Do you need to access the OECD iLibrary, the online repository of OECD’s research and statistics?

As your parliament’s library may already have access to the OECD iLibrary, please check with them first about how to connect.

If your parliament does not yet have access to the iLibrary, contact [email protected] to set up a trial.
