Abstract

Shaping legislative outcomes is at the very heart of legislative activity. Therefore, law-making is one of the key functions and tasks of parliaments. This panel seeks to investigate the role and behaviour of parliamentary actors in the legislative process on the individual level but also on the collective level, i.e. individual MPs as well as parliamentary party groups. The panel aims at analysing the driving factors and effects of legislative behaviour of the involved actors in national, sub-national, and supranational parliaments.
