La démocratie de l'entre-soi
An increasing divide between the people and the elites, social and sexualised inequalities, the weakness of participative democracy, the rejection of the European project in favour of nationalism, the primacy of intimacy in the construction of political involvement and civic connections, uncertainties about the socialism and liberalism of tomorrow…
In this book, a team of researchers from CEVIPOF asks what all these signals tell us about the evolution of democracy in France.
They suggest that what is "common" is no longer based on what is public, but on what is private. That politics is now evolving in communitarian spaces of all kinds, family, religious denominations, political parties, oligarchies… That this confusion in repertoires is met with a social fragmentation that is widely accepted, in spite of the celebrations of republicanism and calls for national unity.
This is the basis for the elaboration of a democracy of private interests, which breaks with the principle of separation between public and private space that has been the foundation for democracy since the French and American revolutions.
Luc Rouban is a director of research at CNRS at the Center for Political Research at Sciences Po (CEVIPOF). His recent publications include La démocratie représentative est-elle en crise? (La Documentation française, 2018) and Le Paradoxe du macronisme (Presses de Sciences Po, 2018).
La matière noire de la démocratieDemocracy's Dark Matter
In a context where policy and campaign platforms have become like any other product for consumption, and in which an increasingly large part of the population feels deprived of autonomy and forced to suffer to the negative effects of globalization, class warfare has changed. Notions of representativity and universality are no longer relevant here.
Le Paradoxe du macronismeThe paradox of Macronism
In order to try and retrace the DNA of Macronism after a year of scandals, Luc Rouban draws on large-scale surveys of French public opinion, as well as on the entourage of the President and the new Assembly.
