In your interest area in political science and international relations, choose a concrete example of a
situation where political power is exercised. Reflect on why you take this to be a good example of political
power: what do you take political power to be (what are the
conditions which must be met in order for something to count as an exercise of political power?) and how does
the situation you have used as an example meet these conditions? Identify the approach to power reflected by
your choices. Explain why you take this to be a better approach than others.
