Keywords:Politics is life, and as with life, politics is pervaded by struggle. The study of politics is intended to equip you with the concepts, theories and empirical information necessary to make sense of that contest on different levels.
Politics is also about us: how we make decisions in society, and who gets what, when and how. Politics is concerned, too, with the conflict of ideas and values, not only at the level of the local community or the nation, but also internationally. More specifically, it has to do with who governs, who gets to decide, and how and why decisions that affect all of us (such as how much students should pay to study at a university) are made. In short, politics matters!
