This two-day workshop aims to bring together researchers interested in interdisciplinary work on political economy and legislative studies. We welcome theoretical as well as empirical papers related to Members of Parliament and legislative elections on all continents. Topics include MPs’ activities, accountability, corruption, vote-buying, transparency, peer effects, legislative bargaining, etc. Papers studying other groups of politicians (local or national) are also welcome.
The workshop is intended for presentation of work in progress that can benefit from discussion. PhD students are more than welcome.
