Discipline summary

Political science is the discipline that studies the behaviour of states and the political actors within them. It is broadly separated into international relations (IR), which focuses on interactions between states, transnational actors and inter-governmental organizations; comparative politics, with more focus on domestic processes and actors such as voting behavior and parties, or democratization and institutions; and political theory. Political science commonly interacts with other social sciences to extend the reach of its analysis, e.g. political economy, political sociology and political psychology.
