Abstract

Comparing parliamentary debates on intervention in Syria in 2013 and 2018, James Strong finds that support for the latter depended on Theresa May’s decision not to call a vote prior to deployment, as well as on the shifting attitude among MPs since 2013, in particular vote-switching among Conservatives.
