What are the policy issues on which parliaments produce legislationÂ? This apparently insignificant question has only rarely been studied closely, particularly from a comparative perspective. However, the production of laws is one of the formative elements of a political community and of democratic competition. In this article, our aim is to study the â€œ attention policyâ€? within the legislative agenda and discuss the methodological challenges. From this perspective, we propose to study three methods of comparing legislative production. Finally, we shall draw lessons from these results and prepare a research agenda.
