Order... and Disorder : Le Brexit ou la victoire amère des études parlementaires

Abstract : In many ways, Brexit has revealed the importance of the British Parliament. Westminster’s central role – whether preserved or regained – is interesting from a political science perspective, not only because many experts accept, even implicitly, the theory of deparliamentarization, but also because legislative studies have been incapable of accounting for the different registers of and rationales for action exhibited over the course of the 2010s by British MPs when arguing for or against Brexit. Focusing on the parliamentary agenda and committees of legislative studies has in fact led many to overlook important elements that can shed light on other sectors of political science, from party sociology to international relations. In addition, the chaotic sessions of the House of Commons in 2019 are a rare illustration of the pertinence of social choice theory, which should encourage political scientists to go beyond Brexit and use the conceptual framework of political economy to understand the multiple forms of derationalization at work in contemporary parliaments.
