During this event the book 'Reforming Senates. Upper Legislative Houses in North Atlantic Small Powers 1800- present' will be presented. This new study of senates in small powers across the North Atlantic shows that senate reforms emerged in the wake of deep political crises within the North Atlantic world and were influenced by the comparatively weak positions of small powers.
