This introductory chapter aims at setting the background of the analyses presented in the chapters of this edited volume. It explains in which context brexit has intervened, and why it has been such an important issue for the british parliament, as well as for the european parliament and the parliaments of the other european union member states. Citizens’ participation is examined too. It also draws general conclusions as to the impact of brexit on parliamentary democracy, and parliaments’ participation in eu affairs.
