Abstract

This article consists of a short summary of the notable historical shifts in the emergence of political science as an academic discipline in the UK. We provide an assessment of the state of the discipline today, focussing upon curriculum developments and quality, student recruitment, the impact of the Research Assessment Exercise, and the PSA’s membership and activities (with a particular emphasis on the role of specialist groups and activities which reach beyond the purely academic community). A substantive section of the paper will draw upon data from recent surveys, reports and benchmarking exercises to illustrate areas of particular strength within the discipline in the UK and areas where more can be done to facilitate engagement and excellence in both teaching and research.
