This group focuses on the study of parliaments and legislatures, and our members include single country specialists as well as those with comparative interests. Our research encompasses questions about executive-legislative relations, scrutiny, organisation and procedure, committees, institutional change and reform, parliamentary parties, representation, parliamentary careers, public engagement and trust.
Our members work on a wide range of legislatures, at national, sub-national and supra-national levels of governance, and encompass both modern and historical perspectives, as well as qualitative and quantitative approaches.
The Group Convenors are Marc Geddes (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Louise Thompson (Louise.Thompson@surrey.ac.uk). Our Communications Officer is Alexandra Meakin (email@example.com). Please get in touch if you would like further information or have any suggestions for the group.
