Background materials of Infoservice

Information Service for MPs (Infoservice) provides the Members of the Parliament and their staff with information and research services. The general principles of the services are professionalism, accuracy, impartiality and confidentiality. Infoservice, in addition to answering the individual requests, supports the work of the Members of the Parliament with proactive background materials as well.

Infoscopes – following the best practices of Anglo-Saxon parliamentary research services – are introductory volumes of the Infoservicefor the new parliament and serve a dual purpose. On the one hand, they provide information on the challenges, the World and Hungary will encounter in the future. On the other hand, they introduce the services that, Infoservice provides the parliamentary work with, especially the brief policy summaries (Infobriefings) and statistical information leaflets (Infotableaus). The previous (2019) and the recent (2022)  Infoscopes are downloadable in printable version by clicking on the links.



Information Briefings (Infobriefings) provide concise, objective, balanced and relevant information on policy issues that are subject to the draft bills or at the focus of the current public policy. They comprise of a brief description and proper references of the legal background, international treaties, EU legislation, national professional, political and civil opinions as well as statistical data.
