The world of political science terms decoded: Invitation to the book presentation
Political science terms such as power, hegemony, state, security, peace, anarchy and structure have long since entered common parlance. But do you really know what lies behind these terms? Each of them harbours years of debate and numerous publications. We cordially invite you to immerse yourself in the world of political term definitions and engage in a fascinating discussion.
