dc.description.abstract1. Course Description This course is an introduction to essential topics of comparative politics. The course will start by examining conceptual, theoretical, and methodological approaches in the study of comparative politics. A second and third section will discuss comparative works pre-selected by themes such as political regimes, regime transitions, comparative development, and comparative revolutions. We will then shift our attention to study the challenges of political representation—focusing on electoral systems, party system institutionalization, and the rise of populism. The selected readings were written in different disciplinary traditions and use various research methods for their empirical research. We will cover different countries and political systems in the readings. However, our objective is not to focus on particular countries but to understand key concepts and themes frequently featured in comparative political research. Classes will consist of lectures dictated by the instructor. Students should come prepared to class by doing all the readings. Complementary readings (those listed under Optional Readings) are not required, though students are encouraged to use them as references and resources. 2. Course Objectives This course aims for students to learn about: § The different theories and methodologies applied in the logic of comparative inquiry. § The differences between democracies, non-democracies, and hybrid regimes. § The relationship between political and economic development. § The various types of party systems and electoral systems that are used around the world. § The trends and challenges that account for the expansion of development and democratization.en_US
