European Parliament Research Group Working Papers


The European Parliament Research Group (EPRG) was set up in the late 1990s by a group of (then!) young scholars of the European Parliament.  Here are the Working Papers we produced in that period, in case you're interested.  Please contact Simon Hix (s.hix@lse.ac.uk) if you have any questions about EPRG.
