Our blog aims to promote the study and understanding of parliaments and related issues. We welcome contributions from UK and international academics or research students within the field of legislative studies and related areas. We also accept submissions from outside academia, including parliamentary practitioners, charities and other organizations working with parliament.
We accept two types of blog; short blogs discussing topical issues and longer blogs which provide an overview of a particular Parliament. All submissions should be free from unnecessary jargon and suitable for a wide audience.
If you are interested in writing for the blog please see our submission guidelines here.
In the latest blog from our Legislatures in Uncertain Times conference, Cristina Leston-Bandeira discusses the history and purpose of petitioning parliament.
In a new blog, Alex Marland and Lisa Moore of Memorial University of Newfoundland discuss their innovative approach to generating ideas for democratic reform in the provincial parliament of Newfoundland and Labrador.
