Akoma Ntoso URI Resolver

This is the error page of the Akoma Ntoso URI Resolver. If you reached this page, it means that you have asked the resolver to resolve an empty Akoma Ntoso URI.

Akoma Ntoso is a standard to define simple, technology-neutral representations of Parliamentary Documents for e-Parliament services in a Pan-African context and provides an enabling framework for the effective exchange of "machine readable" Parliamentary Documents such as legislation, debate record, minutes, etc.

Akoma Ntoso uses location-independent and permanent identifiers (URI) to identify resources such as Parliamentary Documents and ancillary texts, thereby allowing long-term and reliable access to them via web-based technologies. The syntax of Akoma Ntoso URI can be found in the official documentation of the Akoma Ntoso Naming Convention (version 1.0 of 1st February 2007).

Being location-independent, Akoma Ntoso URIs cannot be used directly for navigation, but must be resolved (i.e., converted) into a location-specific URL pointing to to the actual system that, at any given time, stores the requested document. The web browser can take care of this conversion automatically, through a URI resolver such as this one, the Akoma Ntoso URI Resolver.

The working is quite simple: just add after the domain name of the resolver any valid URI according to the Akoma Ntoso Naming Convention, and you will be brought to the relevant document if it is available, or converted into the corresponding location-specific URL otherwise.

You can try the resolver on some of the following URIs:
