Abstract
The analysis of social networks among political elites in parliaments and assemblies did not start with Fowler's (2006) analysis of co-sponsorship networks in the US congress. But it has certainly raised considerable attention to this topic in American Politics. These networks have been used to understand cooperation across partisan lines, informal influence, and polarization. But data on co-voting, or co-sponsorship of bills or inquiries is available for several European parliaments as well, and is increasingly being used. This panel would thus give European researchers working on similar data for Germany, Italy, or Tunisia, a platform to share their findings among each other and with their American peers. The panel will also provide a venue to discuss alternative approaches to construct meaningful social networks in assemblies - or among political elites in general - worldwide.
