Abstract

This panel aims to investigate political careers of parliamentarians and candidates and to shed light on the activities of parliamentary candidates. What kind of pathways lead political candidates to gain parliamentary offices? And how do those pathways relate to their legislative and non-legislative behaviour? We are interested in these career patterns across multiple institutional settings. This panel also invites papers on candidate selection and recruitment and the effects on parliamentary activity.
