Research output: Contribution to journalReview articleResearchpeer-review


This paper analyzes the emergence of parliamentary rules in the modern constitutionalism. We have put special emphasis on the historical and institutional context of the different European legal traditions (Germany, France and England), that allowed the generalization of the parliamentary rules to drive the political process of the representative chambers. In the Spanish case, we have paid special attention to the parliamentary rules of the Courts of Cadiz in 1810, the first formal act which served to recognize, in our constitutional history, those elements that guarantee a model of modern political representation based on national sovereignty.
