WESTMINSTER
New issue of British Politics Review!

The Palace of Westminster - which hosts the British Parliament - counts among the foremost symbols of liberal democracy as well as of Britain itself.

This issue of British Politics Review takes the call for renovating the Palace of Westminster as its point of departure. We have invited a set of scholars to reflect upon different aspects of parliamentary practice today. Many of the contributions have been framed to convey the importance of the building itself or its traditions, and how they change.

Westminster also the venue of a current political drama of historical proportions. The process of Brexit, initiated by referendum and long guided by government decree, has returned to the elected MPs where it
arguably belongs. There will be no Brexit, hard or soft, before the parliamentarians have spoken – debated, negotiated and voted – on the issue.

Contributors include Charlotte Higgins, Philip Norton, Stephen Tienney, Elizabeth Biggs, Cristina Leston-Bandeira, Louise Thompson and
Saskia Rombach.
