This article presents the author’s analysis of the constitutional texts of South American countries regarding the consolidation of universal interaction fields between the chambers of parliaments. In the course of the study, it was found that the typical (universal) interaction fields between the chambers of parlia-ment are represented by the legislative sphere (implemented in the course of adopting laws, holding joint meetings on various occasions); organizational and personnel sphere (provides for the consolidated participation of cham-bers during the formation of public authorities, as well as the appointment of officials); the control sphere, which is represented by three types: personnel and control (related to the implementation of the impeachment procedure against the head of state, resignation of senior state officials, expression of confidence lack in the government), organizational and control (concerns the formation of joint permanent and temporary commissions by the chambers of parliament) and financial control (assumes the consolidated participation of the chambers for the state budget adoption); the international sphere (con-cerns the joint activities of the chambers in the course of the ratification or denunciation of international treaties, the declaration of a state of war or the conclusion of peace). It is concluded that typical spheres of interaction bet-ween the chambers of parliaments in South American countries demonstra-te the legislator’s approaches to the development of interaction between the chambers of parliaments.
