This paper reviews the articles in this volume and places them in the broader discussion
about German politics and comparative legislative behaviour. I describe
their collective understanding of German law-making and highlight the strong
empirical foundation of the research. Some challenges of the research agenda
appear after comparing and contrasting the individual articles. Specifically, I
start with a simple veto game and then amend and scrutinise this model using
theoretical and empirical insights from this volume and the larger literature
on legislative politics. The article closes by suggesting two future areas of
research: institutional transformation and policy dynamics.
