2. Implementation's characteristics

It’s Your Parliament is an application developed by the Danish IT company Buhl & Rasmussen. The concept of the application is based on using public data on the activity of members of the European Parliament – gathering and sharing the data in the form of a transparent information service.

As part of the service, data on the work of selected members of the European Parliament in the term of 2009 to 2014, were collected and shared. The data are published individually – within profiles of the parliamentarians, and collectively – according to affiliation to a political fraction at the European Parliament, or nationality. Each parliamentarian profile includes information closely related to the parliamentary mandate exercised – information on affiliation to a political group, country represented, activity in the European Parliament  (attendance, participation in voting, reports developed, delivered resolutions, as well as information on the Member of Parliament, published at http://www.euractiv.com/). The profile page also contains links to a political group the parliamentarian is affiliated with, national group, website at http://www.europarl.europa.eu, as well as an article at Wikipedia.

Access to the full functionality of the website is possible after registering and account and signing-in. The users who are not signed-in are limited to only observe the content posted therein. Each registered user can, on selected profile sub-pages and pages, post a comment on a specific parliamentarian, as well as support or oppose the activity of the Member of Parliament concerned. In addition, the website allows to compare the data and information gathered on selected EU parliamentarians. The website also provides functionality to share the content published via social networking media.
