Workshops and Conferences
On the occasion of the start of its second lustrum, the National Research School for Political History OPG organizes an international conference to discuss the state of the art in the history of politics. The central issue for this conference is to look for the commonality between the many approaches to the history of politics that have bloomed in the past decades.
With this interdisciplinary conference, the Institute for Historical, Literary and Cultural Studies (HLCS) wants to contribute to a better understanding of the changing place of Europe in the world, and the changing world(s) to which Europe belongs.
The 150th anniversary of the 1867 Reform Act, which made important strides towards the inclusion of working people amongst the electorate, is an occasion for wider reflection on the claims that have been made that parliaments should be (or are) truly representative of the people.

The EuParl board met for a working conference in London in march 2010. The meeting had fruitful discussion which led to several decisions being made.
