During the third international conference of the European Information and Research Network on Parliamentary History (EuParl.net) 45 experts on European parliamentary studies from various academic fields gathered to present, discuss and rethink their latest methodological approaches. Special attention was paid to anthropological, discourse-oriented and oral history approaches to parliamentary institutions, likewise to the implications of the digitalization of parliamentary records.
The conference was organized by the Department of History and Ethnology of the University of Jyväskylä, EuParl.net and the Finnish Historical Society under the supervision of Pasi Ihalainen. The opening of the conference was in the Pikkuparlamentti Building (Little Parliament) in Helsinki, which is a part of the Parliament of Finland Eduskunta. The Speaker, Eero Heinäluoma, had accepted the invitation to give the opening speech of the conference.
