The Journal focuses primarily on South African politics, but not exclusively so. Over the years Politikon has published articles by some of the world's leading political scientists, including Arend Lijphart, Samuel Huntington, and Philippe Schmitter.

It has also featured important contributions from South Africa's leading political philosophers, political scientists and international relations experts. It has proved an influential journal, particularly in debates over the merits of South Africa's constitutional reforms (in 1983 and 1994).

In the last few years special issues have focused on women and politics in South Africa, and the South African election of 1999. Recent articles have looked at the negotiated transition from Apartheid to democracy, aspects of identity politics in post-Apartheid South Africa and issues of democratic consolidation.
