Introduction : Lasses d'Elias : des assemblées dé-pacifiées ?

Abstract : The pacification process described by Norbert Elias finds a paradoxical expression within Parliaments. At first sight, political assemblies are locus where such process can be observed in the follow up of the monopoly of the legitimate violence by the State, and given MPs’ autonomy vis-à-vis social conflicts. Yet, the recent troubles in the French National Assembly about retirement projects indicate how fragile the parliamentary order is. This leads to hypothesis a tendency towards de-pacification within political assemblies. Defining and measuring parliamentary is undoubtedly delicate. Yet, historical, sociological and institutional perspectives can make sense of the endurance of parliamentary violence.
