Political science is the study of politics, power and democracy, and the shaping of societies through the constant interplay between cooperation and conflict. The focus of the field is society-wide: from the individual to the family and private to public institutions that regulate human life. The latter includes parliaments, governments, local and regional democracy and international organizations like the European Union and United Nations.
