The Art of Politics is founded on the principle of giving young academics, writers and practitioners a platform to share their ideas with the world. Many formal and major mainstream publications have too many barriers for publishing, such as long waiting periods, censorship and red tape bureaucratic protocols which discourage young academics, writers and practitioners from writing and sharing their unique experiences and valuable expertise with the world. The Art of Politics is here to give a platform to those who are impacted by these limitations. The Art of Politics aims to look at a variety current affairs and how the role of politics shapes our daily lives and how it impacts the global community. The Art of Politics will also feature a podcast soon, in which various academics, scholars and practitioners will be invited onto, to share their views and opinions on various issues, so watch this space!
