You can subscribe to newsletters containing Riksdag decisions, for example, and follow the Riksdag’s social media accounts. It is also possible to search yourself in the Riksdag’s open data or the Riksdag register. The Riksdag provides live broadcasts of all activities in the Chamber, and all public meetings and press conferences in the Riksdag Press Centre arranged by the Speaker, a committee or the Riksdag Administration. Press conferences organised by parties represented in the Riksdag or individual members of the Riksdag are not broadcast.
