POLI 2460 Comparative Politics of Development (Spring: 3 )


Course Description

This course examines cross-national perspectives on the politics of development. What is the relationship between political, economic, and social development? Who sets the development agenda, and whose voice is heard? What role do various political and social institutions play in shaping development outcomes? In examining these questions, we will consider varying views from multiple regions, and will examine the relevance of these debates from the perspective of policymakers, citizens' organizations, and others engaged in development practice.
