The aim of the second-year Political Science Conférence de méthode is to consolidate your training in the understanding of politics, polities and public policies in contemporary societies. Political science, which in France is best understood as a “political sociology”, draws on a long tradition of descriptive (as opposed to normative) thinking about “the political”. This tradition has made it possible to accumulate positive knowledge on subjects as diverse as the origins of political power, political socialization, political behavior, parties, interest groups, collective mobilization, the political profession, public action, and so on.
