Sociology of Politics and Governance

Lupe [1]

What is politics? How is it done, and to what effect?

We study politics within a broader sociology of governance perspective with a view to how it intertwines with other modes of shaping collective orders, such as science and art.

The efficacy of politics rests with the 'performative representation' of collective subjects. The practical work of politics thus comprises

  • the construction of 'we'-identities and collective interests,
  • the generation of political authority by credibly representing a collective will, and its use for
  • the mobilisation of collective action and the legitimization of norms

We can thus speak of politics as a practice of 'reflexive collectivization', a process in which society continuously shapes itself, often in contested and conflictive ways. The sociology of politics examines the patterns and dynamics of politics as they differ and change across culture and history, often in comparative perspective.
