According to Encyclopedia Britannica, micropolitics is about "small-scale interventions that are used for governing the behaviour of large populations of people."

According to the International Encyclopedia of the Social & Behavioral Sciences, though, the definition goes into completely different direction: "Micropolitics is almost inevitably a part of management as a principal strives to achieve control of and commitment from the staff."

An online dictionary suggests yet another meaning: "Politics on a small or local scale; especially (the study of) the political principles governing or issues arising from the interactions of a relatively small social group, a limited aspect of behaviour, etc., rather than society as a whole".

Therefore, what is the widely accepted definition for micropolitics?
