Abstract

Before I turn to the testing of the hypotheses H7 through H11 on the relationship between parties’ communication behavior and parliamentary activities, I introduce this chapter with a brief account of the major features of parliamentary activities in the German Bundestag from 2005 to 2009. During the 16th legislative term, the German Bundestag convened in 233 plenary sessions that took place every two to three weeks, usually with two to three consecutive sessions in a sitting week (n = 81).
