Political Science is concerned with how power is distributed and wielded at every level, from the household to globally, and everywhere in between. For centuries, theorists have debated how society should be governed. Researchers in the field of Political Science employ a diverse set of methods for data collection and analysis to study a range of historical and contemporary phenomena. SSRN provides an outlet to a broad array of scholarship, including approaches that might not fit in with traditional theories or journal scopes.
