Global politics is the name given to the ways in which countries and nation-states engage with economic and social policies. Global politics as a field of study identifies patterns in the ways countries, or groups of countries engage in these systems, how they interact with each other, and how they communicate about certain issues. It is a vastly complex and large field of study. Issues that currently affect global politics are climate change, violence against women, and the global economy.

Boris Johnson
Series of dimensioned illustrations of Boris Johnson in a range of postures from standing to waving and walking

Boris Johnson, born Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson, is the current Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. He is a member of the Conservative party and has served in a variety of cabinet positions under different governments, most infamously as the UK’s foreign secretary. Inheriting the role from Theresa May, he is now Prime Minister during the politically turbulent time of the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union (for which he led the campaign to Leave in 2016). He has suffered numerous defeats in parliament in his very short time of being Prime Minister and undergone a series of controversies and political blunders, including the very serious and very British problem of having lied to the Queen.

Boris Johnson is 5 foot 9 inches (1.75 m) tall.
