Politics & Public Administration – Politics & Public Administration

Welcome to the Department of Politics and Public Administration at Ryerson University!  I am delighted you are interested in the Department, our programs, students, faculty and activities.  I am very fortunate to be the Chair of the Department – a position which is centrally about facilitating student, faculty and program success. I am excited about our past successes and our future contributions to understanding the relationship between local through to global events and phenomena, and the way that formal and informal political power and authority shapes human well-being. Most importantly, we aim to help students develop into critically informed citizens and to advance research that advances knowledge about social and political challenges of the past, present and future.

The Department of Politics and Public Administration has a long and distinguished history of teaching.  While Ryerson was established as a degree granting university in 1994, our Department has been teaching undergraduate

The Politics of Jesus – Life, Hope & Truth

It may come as a surprise to many, but Jesus Christ did not involve Himself with the politics of His day. Even though He had a strong interest in government, He chose not to become involved in any of the political factions of the day, either in the Jewish government or in its overseer, the government of Rome.

Christ had good reason to remain apart from politics. The message He preached was about government, but a government He would bring to the earth, not one that would come about through human effort. Jesus’ message was about the government of God that will rule the world and that will bring about world peace!

On one occasion, a crowd of followers was so impressed with Jesus’ miraculous ability to feed a large crowd, including 5,000 men, with five loaves of bread and two fish that they attempted to take Him by force

    UK Politics – BBC News

    Secretary Simon Hart has said the question of whether a deal for extra testing
    in Wales with a supplier collapsed, and why that might have happened, is a matter
    for Welsh ministers.

    follows the collapse of a deal the Welsh Government has said it had with Swiss
    pharmaceutical firm Roche to provide 5,000 extra coronavirus tests a day.

    has insisted it “never had a contract or agreement directly with Wales” to
    supply coronavirus testing and its priority was to “support the UK government
    and NHS to scale up testing across the whole of the UK, including in

    secretary Stephen Crabb, who now chairs Westminster’s Welsh affairs committee,
    has written to Mr Hart saying the reported collapse of the deal raises questions
    about “co-ordination and co-operation between Whitehall and Cardiff Bay in the
    procurement of tests and other essential equipment”.

    [Ottawa – March 27, 2020] Canadians are unified in seeing the COVID-19 pandemic as the challenge of a lifetime. Most Canadians say it eclipses the September 11th attacks in terms of severity and this sense of urgency rose during our field period. Overall, 73 per cent think this is the most serious challenge Canada has faced in 50 years (only 12 per cent disagreed).

    Switzerland’s Government and Politics


    Switzerland’s Constitution and Federalism

    Switzerland has a long republican tradition, its modern democratic
    constitution dates back to 1848 only, however, and was put into effect after
    a short civil war in 1847 leaving a conservative minority in a position
    of losers for decades. The constitution was totally revised in 1874
    and is amended organically from time to time since. The 1999 total revision
    did not change anything of importance in substance, the sole purpose was
    to establish a modern and more readable structure and language (there have
    been more substancial changes in small revisions of single items in the last
    five years than between the “old” constitution as of 1998 and the
    “totally revised” constitution).

    The federal constitution defines Switzerland as a federal state composed

    Politics (Aristotle) – Wikipedia

    Politics (Greek: Πολιτικά, Politiká) is a work of political philosophy by Aristotle, a 4th-century BC Greek philosopher.

    The end of the Nicomachean Ethics declared that the inquiry into ethics necessarily follows into politics, and the two works are frequently considered to be parts of a larger treatise, or perhaps connected lectures, dealing with the “philosophy of human affairs”. The title of the Politics literally means “the things concerning the polis”.



    Aristotle’s Politics is divided into eight books which are each further divided into chapters. Citations of this work, as with the rest of the works of Aristotle, are often made by referring to the Bekker section numbers. Politics spans the Bekker sections 1252a to 1342b.

    Book I[edit]

    In the first book, Aristotle discusses the city (polis) or as he likes to call it a “political

    Pluralism | politics | Britannica

    Pluralism, in political science, the view that in liberal democracies power is (or should be) dispersed among a variety of economic and ideological pressure groups and is not (or should not be) held by a single elite or group of elites. Pluralism assumes that diversity is beneficial to society and that autonomy should be enjoyed by disparate functional or cultural groups within a society, including religious groups, trade unions, professional organizations, and ethnic minorities.

    interest group: Pluralism

    Pluralism and neo-corporatism are the two primary theories that have been put forward to explain interest group influence…
