Professor Leston-Bandeira gives evidence to Scottish Parliament

Professor Cristina Leston-Bandeira gave evidence to the Scottish Parliament on how parliaments around the world have adapted to covid-19, on the basis of her research in this area.

As Chair of the UK Study of Parliament Group (SPG) she has also coordinated several online seminars on the topic, with contributions from a wide range of parliaments, to establish the different ways in which the pandemic has affected parliaments’ ability to key a check on government’s policies on covid-19. The SPG is now producing a publication on this topic under her leadership.

A record of Professor Leston-Bandeira’s oral evidence to the Scottish Parliament is available to read in this report.
