Infoservices background materials
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.
Infoscope 2019 – following the best practices of Anglo-Saxon parliamentary research services – serves a dual purpose. On the one hand it provides information on challenges, the World and Hungary will encounter in the future. On the other hand it introduces the services, Infoservice provides the parliamentary work with, especially the brief policy summaries (Infobriefings) and statistical information leaflets (Infotableaus).

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.
The goal of Information Tableaus (Infotableaus) is to provide the legislative work with short information leaflets focussing on statistical data, their visual display and description, on policy issues that are on the agenda of the National Assembly or in the focus of public life.
Analyses are prepared on demand of the MPs, usually longer papers, focussing on the international comparative analysis of the issue. They provide detailed analysis of the legislation and practice of the particular countries – usually the EU Member States. An overview of foreign examples is provided by comparative analysis and tables.
