Legislative Politics and Policymaking

A fundamental question in democratic governance is how public preferences are channeled through representative assemblies into policy outcomes.   Central to answering this question is a need to understand how variations in rules and parliamentary procedures influence the legislative strategies adopted by elected representatives, which ultimately lead to the promulgation of new policies. CSDI scholars and affiliates investigate these questions, as well as studying the impacts that political parties, interest groups, and other public and private interests have on the production of legislative policies.
