Doctrine, from Latin doctrina and means "instructions", "a code of beliefs", or even "a body of teachings".

A doctrine is also a term used in the common law traditions, in reference to a principle of law. These traditions have been established through chronicles of past decisions. Examples of these include the doctrine of self-defense, or the first-sale doctrine. Thus it refers to either a rule or principle of law, particularly when such a rule or principle has been established by precedent.

It refers to taught principles or positions, which make up the body of teachings which are the foundation of a belief system or a branch of knowledge.. It is thus a dogma. It is also used to mean a statement of official policy of the government, principally in matters of foreign affairs as well as military strategy.
