Political science can provide novel and fresh insights into software engineering problems:

  • Empirical research on social change is helpful to understand team dynamics and how to evolve teams.
  • Analyzing political systems as self-organizing systems provides insight on how to simplify modern production environments.

If you are interested in a different look at your everyday questions, join us. No prior political science training or knowledge expected.
