Legislative Studies is an important and growing subfield of Political Science. The Standing Group on Parliaments' aim is to promote comparative research and theory-building on the institutionalisation, capacity, operation, and performance of legislatures. It also promotes the dissemination of such research through conferences, workshops, summer schools and publications. Core interests of the Group’s members are: assembly institutionalisation – the development of organisational patterns, rules and procedures; assembly capacity – the formal powers and resources of parliaments; and assembly operation – the dynamics of the party system and legislative-executive balance.
