The concept of representation is a cross-disciplinary notion that allows for a transdisciplinary approach for explaining the process of functioning of objects like political representation. In the case of this study, it concerns the representation in the context of parliamentary behavior, particularly around the generation of a public policy that is known as ‘The Law of indigenous peoples.’ The novelty of this approach resides in the intersection of two views: a) the institutional or procedural and b) the deliberative or inferential which rests upon the analysis of the processes of signification.
