dc.description.abstract1. Course Description Why do some countries enjoy democracy while others endure dictatorships? What is the relationship between political institutions and economic development? How can we account for similarities and/or differences in terms of political and economic development across regions? This course provides answers to these questions by focusing on Comparative Politics—one of the main sub-fields of Political Science. Topics include the different types of political regimes, forms of democratic governance, party systems and electoral systems, elections under authoritarianism, populism and comparative development. Classes will consist of lectures dictated by the instructor. Active student participation is highly encouraged. Students are advised to come prepared to class by doing all the readings. Complementary readings (those listed under For Background) are not required, though students should use them for references and/or resources. ¶ 2.
