"Workshop on Long-term perspectives on parliaments and governments"
From 26 March 2018 at 2:00 p.m. to 27 March 2:00 p.m.
LIEPP, 254 Boulevard Saint-Germain, 75007 Paris
The workshop will focus on long-term trends in the development of electoral institutions, legislatures and executive-legislative relations. Papers will either analyze their topics within a historical perspective (from 50 years to 200) or by considering the impact of specific historical events and choices primarily on the parliamentary arena. A major aim of the workshop is to assess why and how historical arrangements may impact legislatures decades after they took place. The conference presentations will first and foremost deal with the institutional and sociological aspects of long-term trends in European countries.
