I've recently posted somequestions about political organizations:

My intent was to ask questions about the internal business of political organizations people with boots-on-the-ground experience could answer.

However, I'm not sure how to tag these. I created the tag with the idea that it would encapsulate questions about the operations of political organizations, but I basically made that term up.

Is there a better tag for these questions?

Tags are intended to connect experts with meaningful questions. The question to ask when adding a tag is "can you be an expert in this?"

In this case, can you be an expert on "parties" but not be an expert on "party operations"? Probably not.

Therefore, I would say that adding tags like these is redundant.

    I think you can. Many political scientists have excellent knowledge of political parties, without being knowledgeable in their internal workings. Sort of the difference between an economist and a department manager. So the tag helps differentiate between those different fields of expertise. Commented May 14, 2018 at 15:30
