Depends on the context. It could be anything from voting to politically motivated violence.

By politically motivated violence do you mean protests? And how important Is the government in political behaviour?

Protests are not necessarily violent, but protest is a form of political behaviour.

Planting bombs can be political behaviour, if the reason you are doing it is to fight for a particular cause e.g. IRA, ETA, Rote Armee Fraktion.

As for how important the government is in political behaviour, that's a question that could fill an academic's entire career. However, it's going to depend on a great many factors, including
- whose political behaviour we're talking about (for the government? against? leaders? general public? states interacting with other states?)
- what type of political behaviour we're talking about (voting? bombing?)
- the government's reaction to the political behaviour e.g. meeting violence with violence tends to cause escalation
It should also be remembered that some political behaviour has naff all to do with the government.

Why do you need / want to know? If you can narrow things down a bit, then I may be able to give you a better answer.

what i am interested in is why more people are increasingly becoming apathetic to voting and are instead increasingly taking part in different methods of unconventional political participation such as mass demonstrations, road blocks etc.
