OPENING REMARKS – IFLA PRE-CONFERENCE
Offers an occasion to analyse the role of parliamentary information in building society founded on social solidarity. These two seemingly unrelated elements are brought together by a notion of democratic state ruled by law. Only a democratic state ruled by law may guarantee equal opportunities for all members of society, their cooperation, mutual support and aid. That is the nature of social solidarity, which implies citizens’ empowerment, activity and involvement. Last update: 14 February 2017.
