Analyzing Democracy 2013/14 Fall
(AnalDem 2013/14 Fall)

 This course requires an enrolment key

This course focuses on the ways contemporary democracies are scrutinized, analyzed, evaluated, and innovations proposed in the field of comparative politics. We approach this broad themes from four different angles: What is democracy and how to see when it is (not) there? Where does it come from? What are its qualities? And where should and could it go? This course aims at providing a broad overview of the literature on democracy, a concept that can be seen as the core of political science, in general, and comparative politics, in particular. Students will learn about important arguments, theories, and authors. The course does not aim at teaching students knowledge about specific cases beyond what needs to be known to follow particular arguments discussed in class.
