Visit to Uppsala Gender and Politics Research Seminar

On 15th and 16th January, Cherry Miller made a two-day research visit to the Uppsala Gender and Politics seminar, Department of Government, invited by Michal Grahn.

As part of the visit, she presented a GenParlDip paper: ‘The EU-UK Parliamentary Partnership Assembly: A Preliminary Analysis’.

The feedback on the paper was lively and helpful – highlighting the multiple potential analytical and normative entry points to take towards this newly institutionalising assembly.

Restoring and Renewing Buildings fit for parliamentary diplomacy

The Parliamentary Partnership Assembly’s fourth meeting was held in the Palace of Westminster on 4th and 5th December 2023.

During the session, there was a problem with the temperature in the older building since a window could not be shut. This leads to broader questions about parliamentary diplomacy, the use of space and the UK Parliament’s Restoration and Renewal Programme.

This issue was explored in a blog by Cherry Miller (University of Helsinki, Finland) and Alex Meakin (University of Leeds, UK), for the Constitution Unit.
