Parliamentary Debates on Economics and Finance 1821-1910

Parliamentary Debates on Economics and Finance 1821-1910

The main objective of this project is the valuation of the parliamentary debates as a source of historical knowledge. In this particular case - it is an indispensable documentary collection for the study of the formation of political and economic discourse and its repercussion on the public. In effect, the Chamber of Deputies constitutes a central place of discussion and political decision in strategic matters for the design, configuration and planning of the Portuguese economic and financial fabric throughout the period of the constitutional monarchy (1820-1910).

The main objective of this project is the valuation of the parliamentary debates as a source of historical knowledge. In this particular case - it is an indispensable documentary collection for the study of the formation of political and economic discourse and its repercussion on the public.

Objectivos: 
The results of this project are essentially of two types: 1) Research and consultation system that allows identification, organisation and use of information relative to parliamentary debates on economic and financial topics during the period under study. <p>The creation of this system is based on a database composed of 5355 records with 12 information fields, built through the systematic reading of the <em>Diários da Câmara dos Deputados</em> [Official Journals of the Chamber of Deputies] (or, in substitution, the Diário do Governo [Official Journal of the Government] or the Diário de Lisboa [Official Journal of Lisbon] in the years in which the <em>Diários da Câmara dos Deputados </em>was not published) from the several periods of legislature between 1821 and 1910. The research results contain the indispensable identification elements for the consultation of the debates in the digital archive available on the page of the Assembly of the Republic. 2) Set of essays and publications on the most significant economic and financial debates and about the deputies that most stood out in these matters during the period under analysis. The diversity of such studies represents the wealth of the sources and the multiplicity of research interests of the members of the team that undertook this project. </p><p>See <a href="http://cisep.iseg.utl.pt/dpef/" title="blocked::http://cisep.iseg.utl.pt/dpef/">http://cisep.iseg.utl.pt/dpef/</a></p><p> </p>
