RED_PARLAMENTA is a network of Parliamentary Information and Documentation Services in the Regional Parliaments (Parlamentos Autonómicos) in Spain.
This network started its work officially in March 2011 when the Speakers of the Regional Parliaments in Spain decided to create a network of cooperation with regard to parliamentary documentation and information.<
In November 2011 the first meeting of the administrators of the network, the heads of the parliamentary information units in the administrations of the Parlamentos Autonómicos, took place in Valladolid in Castilla y León.
The German delegate in our section, Christine Wellems, was invited to present a paper on networking and cooperation among the parliamentary information and documentation services in the German State (Laender) parliaments.
