Comparative Politics (PSIR212)

The course aims at providing a conceptual and theoretical framework to study politics comparatively. The course is designed in such a way to explain how governments and political establishments gain, exercise and maintain political power. It also considers three contemporary developments: democratization, liberalization and globalization. Political systems such as liberal democracies, authoritarian systems and military regimes are studied. It is expected that the study of modern states as theoretical and practical systems will help students to improve their understanding and capacity to make academic comparisons between the political processes and institutions of different political systems
