Comparative Table of Parliamentary TA Institutions


Finding Topics

Committees submit their proposals to the PER and as a first step, other committees, relevant to the subject, can be contacted in order to verify their interest in cooperating in the project. A first draft with suggestions of focal points and methods is written, often after discussion with experts in the field. The draft is presented at a committee meeting and the decision to commission the study is taken. Following this, a parliamentary reference group with Members of Parliament from all parties (in most cases) is formalised. If several committees participate, the reference group will be composed of MPs representing the committees involved. At a first meeting with the reference group, the focal points and methods are discussed and decided upon.
