Apoliticism is apathy or antipathy towards all political affiliations.[1] A person may be described as apolitical if they are not interested or involved in politics.[2] Being apolitical can also refer to situations in which people take an unbiased position in regard to political matters.[3] The Collins English Dictionary defines apolitical as "politically neutral; without political attitudes, content, or bias".[4]
