Overview

  • Why study political science?

We live in interesting times. Our news tells us that the human world is changing rapidly – political and economic institutions once seen as permanent appear increasingly fragile and subject to change. Yet, despite various moments of so-called ‘crisis’ in which change might be expected, we see significant levels of continuity with respect to the underlying policies and actors governing that world. Is the US losing power? Are the so-called BRICs taking over? What is the future of democracy? Is conflict increasing? And, why does neoliberalism remain so resilient despite the financial crisis and ongoing economic instability? Only through developing expertise and forming new knowledge can we begin to understand these questions towards ensuring the world is managed optimally.
