Abstract [en]

The chapter presents the findings from a quantitative survey of over 80 parliamentarians, as well as website surveys combined with qualitative interviews. The authors explore the degree of usage of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) by Swedish parliamentarians. They suggest that, by 2005, Swedish MPs were becoming 'electonic parliamentarians' and that this, combined with the growing usage of political blogs, places increasing demands upon party organisations and the Riksdag to consider the broader management and accountability issues of greater ICT usage by individual MPs. The authors argue that there is a pressing requirement for further research on these organisational and institutional dimensions by scholars of legislative studies, particularly, given the developments in ICT-advanced political systems, like Sweden. The chapter was also published in the Journal of Legislative Studies in 2007
