Abstract: Artikkelissa problematisoidaan se, kuinka Britanniassa on Brexitiin liittyen pohdittu sitä, tulisiko parlamenttia kuulla ennen EU:lle tehtävää eroilmoitusta. Samalla artikkelissa pohditaan, mitä oikeusvaltiollisuus englantilaisille merkitsee ja mitä se merkitsee manner-Euroopassa.In contemporary politics it is important to emphasize the parliamentary democracy, the separation of powers between the legislator, the executive and the judiciary as well as the rule of law. Such constitutional structures will in turn strengthen the protection of human and fundamental rights. Thus democracy, the rule of law and the protection of human rights are intertwined in a sense that each of them seem to entail the existence of the other two. Good governance is also inseparably interlinked to the democratization, the rule of law and respect for human rights. All these standpoints may seem to be basics of constitutional and administrative law, but yet they are relevant in today’s world of the so-called ’post-truth era’. And indeed the concept of rule of law has come to the fore in both political debates and academic studies. The importance of the rule of law can be illustrated by referring to the debate in the UK, whether the UK government can trigger the Article 50 procedure without an act of the Parliament on grounds of the royal prerogative. Currently we know that the UK government cannot do that on grounds of the Supreme Court ruling of 24 January 2017
