Question Selinux-how do i find out what domains have permissions on what type?(selinux policy)

Hi guys,
I have been trying to find out how selinux works and this what i have understood so far. We have domains(processes)and type(resources) and according to the Selinux policy, access controls(selinux security policy) are defined which decides what level of access a domain has on a type(directory for example). Now my problem is how do i find out what domains have permissions on what types?? in it possible to read the selinux security policy?? If so please tell me the file location. Im using Redhat Enterprise Linux 5.
