"Parliaments, Estates and Representation - Parlements, Etats et Representation" is the journal of the International Commission for the History of Representative and Parliamentary Institutions (ICHRPI) - Commission internationale pour l'histoire des Assemblees d'Etats (CIHAE). It is edited by Dr Alexander Cowan, Reader in History at Northumbria University, UK, and appears as an annual volume. The aim of the Commission is to promote research into the origin, growth and development of representative and parliamentary institutions throughout the world in all periods. In particular, it encourages the study of the development of representative institutions in a wide and comparative way. It facilitates the international exchange of bibliographical information. It is concerned with the political theory and institutional practice of representation, as well as with the internal organization and the social and political background to parliaments and assemblies of estates. The Commission now has almost two hundred members from at least thirty countries including the United States of America, Russia and almost all European countries. It meets every year at the invitation of the national sections or university organizations and once every five years in association with the International Congress of Historical Sciences, of which it is an affiliated organization. Historians and political scientists interested in any aspect of the history of representative institutions are warmly invited to join the Commission. Paid-up members receive the journal free. Further details concerning the Commission may be obtained from the Secretary-General (Professor Estevao de Rezende Martins, Departamento de Historia, Universidade de Brasilia, Caixa Postal 04363, 70919-970 Brasilia/DF, Brazil).show more
