Roll-call voting behaviour in legislatures

Published in Robert Rohrschneider & Jacques Thomassen. Oxford handbook of political representation in liberal democracies. Oxford: Oxford University Press. 2020, p. 137-154
Abstract Roll call votes offer rich behavioural information on individual members of parliament (MPs) and have been used to study many important research questions, also dealing with issues of representation. With the help of such votes MPs (and/or their parties) can be held to account. The literature finds that evidence for such accountability relationships, is, however, also hampered by different uses of roll-call votes across time and space.
