  • Samenvatting

      The smallest parliament in Belgium is the one of the German-speaking community with its 25 members. It is responsible for only 74.000 inhabitants and nine municipalities, but it is nonetheless a fully fledged parliament and government. Due to its limited size and therefore little attention in media and political science, its functioning is quite unknown. This article describes the profile of its politicians and examines the legislative and controlling function of the Parliament, while considering its relationship with the Government. As in other parliaments, we expect a dominant government but due to some distinct characteristics, we expect this to be even truer for the German Community. Therefore, while explaining the results of our research, the emphasis will be put on these characteristics.
