Intro to Comparative Politics

Using the comparative method, this course offers insights into some of the central questions in the study of politics: Why do countries democratize? What explains differences in the institutions of government? Do these differences matter? What is the relationship between democracy and economic development? These questions will be explored by examining politics in a range of countries both developed and developing. The course is organized around important themes, not particular countries. (Comparative)
