(also commitology, committology)

Originally: the study of the organization and functions of committees. In later use also: committees and their practices considered collectively, now especially in the context of the implementation of European Union legislation and policy.

1950s. From commit- + -ology.


It is very clear that we need to form a committee to study the work of this body. We will call it the ad hoc, standing, seated, commitology committee.
