POLTEXT’s proposal for ParlaMint’s ‘Call for New Languages’ has been successful and POLTEXT will now have the opportunity to contribute parliamentary corpora to ParlaMint’s (CLARIN) collection.
The ParlaMint project - operating within the CLARIN infrastructure - makes accessible national parliamentary data. The availability of comprehensive parliamentary data is crucial, especially in times of global crisis such as the Covid-19 pandemic. ParlaMint’s goal is to provide resources and tools for focused observations on trends, opinions, decisions on lockdowns and restrictive measures as well as on the consequences with respect to health, medical care systems, employment, etc. in times of emergencies.
