PSCI 430 - Democratization

(3cr) This course is designed to introduce students to the extensive literature on democratization in comparative politics. The resurgence of democracy in Latin America, Eastern Europe, and other regions has sparked significant political science research attempting to understand the factors that create, sustain, and institutionalize democratic governance. This course will analyze the major approaches and the critical issues that form the democratization literature in comparative politics. Rather than drawing upon one particular region, this course is organized thematically and draws upon the experiences of Latin American, Southern European, and the post-communist states. Prerequisites: PSCI 100  or PSCI 101 , or permission of instructor.
