The research cluster ‘Parliaments, Elections and Political Representation’ provides opportunities for Ph.D. researchers working on the circuit of representation. Broadly considered, the cluster engages and sustains research on parliaments, political elites, legislative behaviour, political parties, party systems, elections, and voting behaviour. It welcomes contributions and collaborations across different disciplines (Public Law, Political Science, Political Philosophy, History), methodological approaches (theoretical or empirical, qualitative or quantitative, small-N or large-N studies), and perspectives (domestic or comparative ones).
