The weak interaction between quarks induces a parity-violating component in the interactions between nucleons, which is expected to be suppressed by a factor of about 10−7 to 10−6 compared to the dominant parity-conserving part of the interaction. A theoretical framework to analyze and interpret parity-violating observables in few-nucleon systems is described and selected results are presented.
