Abstract

The democratisation of suffrage and the parliamentarisation of government were two major changes in the 19th and early 20th century European politics. Their conceptualisation as well as the institutional and procedural implications for political action was a major topos in European politics since Max Weber and his times. The panel discusses different contributions to these debates among both scholars and politicians in different European countries.
