(p.235) 8 Depoliticization
Delegated Governance and the British State

Matthew Flinders (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the concept of depoliticization in detail. It seeks to show how it has played an increasingly important role since the election of New Labour in 1997, and how it raises fundamental questions about the nature of ‘the political’, the limits of democracy, and the existence of more positive choices in the face of growing public disenchantment with politics.

Keywords:   depoliticization, repoliticization, arena-shifting, disenchantment, New Labour, limits of democracy
