Abstract

The panel focuses on recent methodological advances. For example, this includes text-as-data approaches which make use of the growing availability of the digital documentation of parliamentary activities as well as of the behaviour of MPs on social media. Additionally, new methodological approaches that address questions of representation and decision-making in a novel manner also comprise experiments, the analysis of voting-advice applications, or network analysis. The panel invites papers that apply or discuss the use of innovative methods within parliamentary studies.
