Reference: Selection of New Research Briefing Papers from UK House of Commons and House of Lords Libraries

The UK House of Commons and House of Lords Libraries publish and update a large amount of research briefings each day.

Reports cover hundreds of topics both domestic and international and might remind you of the type of material that the Congressional Research Service provides.

This page provides access to thousands of reports. Entries can be sorted by:

  • Type of Paper
  • Topic (More than 350 are Listed)
  • Date (1991-2011)

Here’s a small selection reports published or updated from November 1, 2011 – December 1, 2011.  Our focus is on reports that we hope will be of greatest interest to an international audience. Again, this is only a small amount of the material published last month.

Each of the following links will take you to an abstract along with a direct link to the full text that you can access as a PDF file. All reports are free.

Note: In addition to visiting or following INFOdocket, make sure to take a look at Full Text Reports, our sister site. Each day we post new reports (almost always free) from governments, think tanks, ngo’s, non-profits, academia, and other sources on a variety of topics.
