Introduction to Iceland

A lecture on Icelandic politics and a visit to Alþingi

In this talk, a lecturer will go over the basic structure of the Icelandic government and politics, the separation of powers and the impact of the current crisis on society. Afterwards, the parliament building will be visited. There we will get a tour of the building, and a member of parliament will tell us about the history of the parliament.
