Welcome to Political Science Wiki

Political Science Wiki

The long stagnant Political Science Wiki is redone, with a new host and setup and (hopefully) more attentive editors and content. For now it’s still just me, and over the next few days I intend to run through and create a number of very simple definitional entries (e.g. just a sentence or two on a concept) to start filling out the site a bit. Since it’s a Wiki, it’s up to the community as a whole to pitch in and add quality content. So, if you’re interested in political science and want to contribute, please join in!

Thank you for visiting, and expect more updates here soon.

Political science

Political science is a branch of social science that deals with the theory and practice of politics and the description and analysis of political systems and political behavior. Political Science is often described as the study of who gets what, where, when and why. Discovering a proper balance between the individual, the society and its Government for civilization and human progress is paramount.

Fields and subfields of political science include political theory and philosophy, civics and comparative politics, theory of direct democracy, apolitical governance, participatory direct democracy, national systems, cross-national political analysis, political development, international relations, foreign policy, international law, politics, public administration, administrative behavior, public law, judicial behavior, and public policy. Political science also studies power in international relations and the theory of Great powers and Superpowers.

Political science is methodologically diverse. Approaches to the discipline include classical political philosophy, interpretivism, structuralism, and behavioralism, realism, pluralism, and institutionalism. Political science, as one of the social sciences, uses methods and techniques that relate to the kinds of inquiries sought: primary sources such as historical documents and official records, secondary sources such as scholarly journal articles, survey research, statistical analysis, case studies, and model building.
