The term doctrine refers to a principle, or set of closely related principles, used in government, law or religion that governs an issue and requires a result in a dogmatic manner.

In government, doctrines typically apply to foreign relations, as in the Monroe Doctrine or Bush Doctrine.

In law, doctrines typically develop through application of several judicial decisions as precedent.
