Research on the french law-making process

What happens when you try to put the law into git

The Law Factory is a research project which attempts to make it easier to observe the law-making process in the French Parliament. It allows to track down the different steps of the parliament process, to identify when a particular piece of law was introduced, and to look at all the amendments and the debates per article. The software is fully open-source, based on Python 3 for the data collection. It's a common project of the association Regards Citoyens, the médialab research lab of Sciences Po Paris and the Centre d’Études Européennes et de Politique Comparée.

In this Talk we will present the work done and the research output produced.
