Course Description

GOVT 016
Comparative Politics
Fall

This course introduces students to three major concepts in comparative politics: state, nation, and regime. Using comparisons between countries from all over the world, the course examines how states emerge and survive, nations are built and change, and how regimes—both democratic and authoritarian—operate. The case comparisons expose students to the comparative method and to the wide range of topics studied in the field of comparative politics.
