IParl-Research Colloquium

Our colloquium meetings are primarily conceived as a forum for the exchange of ideas and serve to discuss ongoing and completed research projects on topics of parliamentarism and "related" areas such as party or electoral research.

Researchers as well as people with an interest in parliamentarianism are cordially invited to present their research projects or results, scientific qualification theses or project ideas with practical relevance and to discuss them with us. Master's students and doctoral candidates are also expressly invited. The presentations can be given in German or English.

The colloquium takes place on Thursdays from 10 am to 12 pm in the IParl and hybrid on request. If you are interested, please write an email with a few words about your topic to pyschny@iparl.de.
