Sociologists study the process by which groups make decisions and promote their interests, typically in civil government (the relationship among individuals, social groups, and the state) but also in groups such as corporations, universities, unions, and churches. Sociological research focuses on the social and cultural sources of power and authority, such as wealth, class, race, religion, and ideology, which affect the dynamics of decision-making within and across organizations, states, and international entities.
Sociology also examines how these decisions impact individuals, cultures, and social groups in terms of their legal and social standing, the distribution of resources and opportunity, and their ability to acquire and use power and authority.
