ICHRPI Membership

Historians and political scientists interested in any aspect of the history of representative institutions are warmly invited to join the Commission.

Our membership subscription is at present 45,5 Swiss francs a year: paid-up members receive free copies of the journal Journal Parliaments, Estates and Representation, which is published twice a year.

How to join the Commission


a) Membership information for countries where we have National Convenors:

In many countries we have National Convenors who collect annual subscriptions and arrange for the distribution of various circulars, including copies of this journal. In countries where we have National Convenors, members pay their subscription directly to the convenors, who will supply details of the exact amount required in the national currency; they should also complete the membership form and return it to the Secretary General (contact details below) and a copy to the National Convenor with their payment (please ask the National Convenor to know the amount in the local currency).
