Le Vote disruptif

Les élections présidentielle et législatives de 2017
The disruptive vote
The presidential and legislative elections of 2017

A process of creative destruction of a rare intensity swept through the French political system during the 2017 elections. It began with a series of dazzling downfalls, continued through a political campaign unable to focus on genuine issues, and then through an explosion in electoral mobility, to end in a post-election period comparable to a devastated battleground.

After the storm, now comes the time for analysis and the first research results.

The twenty new contributions published together here, along with a chronology and synthesis of the votes in the form of graphics and tables, signal the end of a political cycle that began after the Second World War. They show how the party system is waning, and how representative institutions are thrown into question in favour of network organisations and a demand for horizontal democracy.

Contributions:

La démocratie de l'entre-soi
Pascal Perrineau, Luc Rouban
In this book, a team of researchers from CEVIPOF suggests 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...
