Exopolitics is a new scientific discipline that focuses on the political aspects of interactions with extraterrestrial life. It studies the key individuals, institutions and political processes that are associated with extraterrestrial life in general, as well as, more specifically, those associated with the extraterrestrial presence here on Earth. It therefore belongs to the political sciences.

Exopolitics is defined as an interdisciplinary scientific field, with its roots in the political sciences, that focuses on research, education and public policy with regard to the actors, institutions and processes, associated with extraterrestrial life, as well as the wide range of implications this entails through public advocacy and newly emerging paradigms.

  • It's because exopolitics is more about politics, government, and law. It's a new scientific discipline that focuses on the political aspects of interactions with extraterrestrial life. – kenorb Jun 18 '14 at 14:13
  • These are just suggested questions, I didn't get too deeply into every questions. Buying star can be ignored. Area 51 is owned by US government, so it could have political aspects involved. – kenorb Jun 18 '14 at 14:35

I don't think this is a good tag to add at this time. It isn't a well-established term that will be useful for site visitors or users.

  • It doesn't have a Wikipedia article (which suggests non-notability of the term)
  • Everything I can find online about the term circles back to the work of Alfred Webre, whose theories that are labelled exopolitics posit that we are living on a quarantined planet and are being given an opportunity to join the rest of the spiritually evolved universe society. His university has courses like "Jump Room 101: US chrononaut Andrew D. Basiago discusses the CIA’s Mars visitation program of the 1980’s".
  • Other websites using the term:

Even if we were to add a tag, I would not be in support of the definition you provide.

  • The definition you provide seems to be inaccurate, and not descriptive of what the word "exopolitics" is actually used for (at least on sites that I found on the first page of Google). Exopolitics is largely associated with non-scientific beliefs and pseudoscience.
  • The definition you provide doesn't say what exopolitics is.
    • It says what it is rooted in (who cares).
    • It says exopolitics is an interdisciplinary scientific field (it isn't).
    • It says exopolitics "focuses on research, education and public policy" (that sounds like something an organization would do, not a field of research).
    • "with regard to the actors, institutions and processes, associated with extraterrestrial life" - Associated by whom? It seems this can encompass anybody that exopoliticists think is associated with extraterrestrial life, so this part of the definition isn't actually limiting.
    • as well as the wide range of implications this entails through public advocacy and newly emerging paradigms (what does this even mean?)
