Political scientists study the allocation and transfer of power in decision making, role and system of governance including governments and international organizations, political behavior and public policy. They measure the success of governance and specific policies by examining many factors, including stability, justice, material wealth, and peace. Some political scientists seek to develop this science in a positive way by doing political analysis. While others perform a normative development by making specific policy recommendations.

The study of politics is complicated by frequent involvement of political scientists in the political process, because they usually provide the teaching framework used by other commentators, such as journalists, specific interest groups, politicians, and the election participants to analyze problems and make choices. Political scientists may act as an advisor for a particular politician, or even play a role as a politician himself. Political scientists can be found working in governments, in political parties, or providing public services. They may work in the Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) or political movements. In various capacities, people educated and trained in political science can add value and contribute their expertise to the company. Companies such as think tanks (think-tank), research institutes, polling and public relations agencies often employ political scientists.
