The journal Observatoire de la société britannique is a peer-reviewed journal of British area studies. It publishes scientific articles in English and in French which cover political, economic and social matters in contemporary Britain. The journal has a unique position in the current scientific landscape: it offers academics the opportunity to discuss the methodology used in the field of social sciences, and, with an insistence on international comparisons, enriches British civilisation studies in French academia.
The journal is published biannually. It also issues the proceedings of the international symposiums organised by the Observatoire de la société britannique network (see “Le réseau OSB” for a description of the academic consortium).

L'économie britannique et le Brexit

Edited by Susan Finding

On the eve of a new era in British international relations, an era of political, social and economic reconfiguration, this issue presents articles analyzing the impact on the British economy of the UK exiting the European Union. The current issue examines the state of the debates around certain economic issues raised by the Brexit decision and the process.

The articles are organized in three sections concerning the UK as a whole, the future of the areas with devolved government (Scotland and Northern Ireland), and the financial sector.

The contributions underline fundamental political and economic issues such as the political philosophy underpinning the whole, the place of the service industry and that of the financial sector in the British economy, the relations between the constituant parts of the UK, and international relations outside the EU, notably with the USA.
