Abstract

Local and regional parliaments have received relatively little attention from political scientists so far. This is surprising because these subnational legislatures make important decisions that affect citizens and despite the fact that many national politicians learn the tricks of the trade here. This panel invites papers analysing and/or theorising political behaviour in municipal councils and regional legislatures using qualitative and quantitative methodologies. We encourage the submission of comparative papers as well as single case studies.
