Abstract

Representation and responsiveness are crucial for the functioning of representative democracies. Parliaments play a key role in the political process regarding the representation of citizens as well as the political responsiveness of the relevant actors. This panel seeks to investigate the role of legislatures regarding democratic representation, but also the role of legislative actors in terms of fulfilling their responsiveness function. Furthermore, this panel addresses the effects of legislative behavior on the perception of policy outputs.
