POLI 2434 Post-Soviet Politics (Fall: 3 )
This course explores the political, economic, and social changes that have taken place in the post-Soviet countries. We will examine the evolution of political institutions, the effects ofeconomic transition, the development of civil society, and regional political relations. The course is designed to familiarize students with the political and socioeconomic realities of post-communist countries; to encourage students to think critically, using these countries as case-studies, about the meaning of democracy, democratization, economic change, and social empowerment and justice; and to evaluate competing arguments about the trajectory of the post-communist states and their place in the world.
