Kommission für Geschichte des Parlamentarismus und der politischen Parteien (KGParl)

The Commission for the History of Parliamentarianism and Political Parties (KGParl) was founded in Bonn in 1951 by a group of renowned historians, jurists and political scientists. Since then its main objective has been basic research in the historical development of parliamentarianism and political parties. Recently the Commission has put a new focus on comparative research in the development of European parliamentarianism and the relationship between parliament, media and the public sphere.

With more than 250 publications since 1952 it has made fundamental contributions to the knowledge and understanding of political and parliamentary development during the nineteenth and twentieth century especially in Germany.
