教育目標

本課程乃是政治研究所博士班與碩士班的選修課程。其內容主要在探討民主憲政體制下(不論是總統制,議會制抑或是半總統制),國會(立法機關)必然是政府權力中心的事實。在民主憲政體制下,法律必須由民選的國會所制定,國會藉由法律的制定,為整個社會做權威性的價值分配,因此民主政治的統治必須以贏得國會的多數支持為前提。不過,國會雖然具有立法的權力,而其如何立法則需視國會內部的結構(structure),以及國會與其他政治機構(political institutions)之間的互動關係而定。基本上,國會的立法過程(legislative process)乃是政治過程(political process)的一環。本課程旨在介紹國會內部的結構,並說明影響國會立法的政治因素,以期學生具備相關的政治專業知識,決策分析、領導與學術研究的能力。
