The Centre for Parliamentary Studies (CESP)


The Centre for Parliamentary Studies works on the observation and the interdisciplinary research on procedures, organisation and composition of the two Chambers of the Italian Parliament, and their relationships with the European Parliament and the regional Assemblies.
The Centre coordinates the activities of scholars and researchers in the fields of:

  • Parliamentary history
  • Sociology and parliamentary statistics
  • Parliamentary law in Italy and in the EU
  • Legislative drafting
  • Parliamentary and budget procedures

Together with the research activity, the Centre organises the Master in Parliament and Public Policies, an in-depth seminar and post-graduate professionalization.
