Political Science | Comparative Politics: Advanced Industrial Democracies

This seminar about European politics introduces participants to a
range of issues that concern analysts of Europe and, more broadly,
advanced industrialized democracies. Therefore, this class is not
just a survey of European countries. Rather, using Europe as
a "testing ground," the seminar's analytical goal is to introduce
to several issues that preoccupy analysts of advanced democracies.

class about advanced democracies. Accordingly, the seminar's
thematic focus will change on an almost weekly basis. Topics include
Institutional Systems, Party systems, Political Culture,
Modernization and Economic Theories of
