The XI Riigikogu finished its work in spring 2011. Since the VII Riigikogu, the Chancellery of the Riigikogu in cooperation with the National Library of Estonia has recorded the most important activities of our parliament in a statistics collection.

This publication (“Riigikogu XI koosseis: statistikat ja ülevaateid” (“The XI Riigikogu: Statistics and Surveys”), Edi-tor-in-Chief Aaro Mõttus. Tallinn, 2011) is the third.

The book is divided into an articles section and a statistics sections. The aim of the authors was the readily accessible presentation of data and the possibility to compare the statistics of different compositions of the Riigikogu in consolidated tables.

The authors hope the book will be of use to the political scientists, students, journalists or simply to people interested in the work of the Riigikogu. The analysis of the work of the Riigikogu helps to add colour to the discussions about the general values of parliamentarian-ism and the activities of the Estonian parliament. The collection has a summary in English that enables to introduce Estonian parliamentarianism beyond Estonia.
