The aim of the Committees and Commissions Research Network is to study the working commissions of parliamentary and representative institutions over the centuries, mostly in Europe, but not exclusively, assessing their political prominence and the margin of executive capacity they may had, as well as the activity and political role played by their members or their governing bodies: presidents, vice-presidents and secretaries.

It was set up in 2020 by a group of researchers linked to the following research groups and universities: Study Group on Institutions and Political Cultures (XVI-XXI centuries) (GEICP) of Pompeu Fabra University, Group “Biography & Parliament” of the University of the Basque Country / Euskal Herriko Unibertsitatea, Istituto di Storia dell’Europa Mediterranea del CNR (ISEM-CNR), the University of Strathclyde, the Humanities Institute (UCD) and the Department of Political Science of the University of Pisa. A large number of researchers who are members of the CommiNet are linked to the International Commission for the History of Representative and Parliamentary Institutions (ICHRPI), which has supported, in recent years, many of the activities organized by CommiNet’s researchers.
