Society Information

The Structure & Organisation of Government (SOG) is a research committee of the International Political Science Association. SOG was established as a study group with IPSA in 1988, later becoming Research Committee 27.

The group's primary focus is the comparative study of executive branches and their changing roles in public policy making. At the centre of this focus are the dynamics of public bureaucracies and their relations with political executives and interests in civil societies.

Membership of SOG includes a personal subscription to Governance. For further information visit our Membership page.
