Politics, Law and Social Thought

Politics, Law and Social Thought is a joint program of Rice's School of Humanities and School of Social Sciences that enables Rice students to successfully engage with the big political questions relevant to contemporary society in a global setting. Political theory is the backbone of our understanding of modern democracy and law. Political theory shapes the way democracies work--from government to protest, from protest to revolution and back again. Understanding the foundations of politics and law requires understanding their historical and social contexts.
