We summarize recent results on parity-violation in few-nucleon systems, including pp elastic scattering and np radiative capture. These results are relevant to recent or present experimental measurements at TRIUMF and LANSCE, respectively. We also present results for other potential or planned experiments, summarizing the contributions they will make to understanding the weak parity-violating NN interaction. Dependencies upon the NN strong interaction are also addressed.
