abstract
Political representation is a crucial concept in political science. The political representation of new social groups (based on sex, age, ethnic origin or sexual preference) is problematic. Our research focuses on formal representation (e.g. right to vote), descriptive representation (e.g. selection by parties and voting behavior) and substantive representation (defending interests inside and outside parliament)
