This repository contains code to build cosponsorship networks from bills passed in the lower and upper chambers of the Romanian Parliament.

HOWTO

Replicate by running make.r in R.

The build.r script then assembles the edge lists and plots the networks, with the help of a few routines coded into functions.r. Adjust the plot, gexf and mode parameters to skip the plots or to change the node placement algorithm.
