A key problem in election studies is the reliance on surveys in which ethnicity and race were not a primary focus, and where ethnicity is assumed to be equated with country of origin of respondents or their ancestors (as opposed to more subjective measures of ethnic identity) (Laponce, 1994).
A major finding in their research, which relies on biographical and surname analysis, as well as a survey of parliamentarians, is that the level of minority presence in the House of Commons had by 1993 nearly corresponded to the incidence of non-British, non-French minorities in the population at large.
The declining positive attention Parliament gives to political issues that have conventionally been identified as of concern to visible minorities and immigrant communities (such as immigration, employment equity and multiculturalism) indicates a need to pursue closer study of the processes that hinder substantive representation of minority issues (Black and Lakhani, 1997:24).

 Parliament of Australia: Senate: Papers on Parliament No 34 - Chapter 7
When I interviewed members of the federal parliament in 1996, about half of those in my sample mentioned the importance of representing a constituency related to some aspect of their identity other than their political party or geographical constituency.
[8] These approaches go beyond the idea of the parliament as the `mirror of the nation's mind'—an idea put forward by John Stuart Mill and subsequent supporters of PR—to suggest that reflection of different forms of embodiment and the life experiences associated with them, particularly experiences of subordination, exclusion and denial, are also important.

Brazil argues that subsidies granted Canadian enterprises by EDC are, as a matter of legal directive, "'for the purposes of supporting and developing, directly or indirectly, Canada's export trade and Canadian capacity to engage in that trade and to respond to international business opportunities.'"
Brazil asserts that EDC is required to fund exports, as opposed to domestic sales, and that as a result, EDC itself and assistance to the regional aircraft industry granted thereunder, is de jure contingent upon export, within the meaning of Article 3 of the SCM Agreement.
Brazil asserts that the Canadian regional aircraft exporter's product is more attractive to a purchaser, in turn, for the simple reason that it costs less than it would without the Canadian Government's help.
