Our Politics programmes are structured to provide a ‘people centred’ view of politics past and present, examining people’s struggles to change worlds and to try to get things done and how they develop their systems of government, or interact with them, to solve problems and address injustice.
Politics addresses the fact that increasing numbers of people are turning away from party politics and finding other ways of ‘speaking out’ (through pressure groups, for example, or development of online communities, through mass protest and other forms of ‘resistance’ or civil disobedience, or through new approaches to campaigning). At the centre of all these investigations are students’ developing understandings of the workings of power in all its forms.
