AADS 1150 Intro to Sub-Saharan African Politics (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

This course provides students with the necessary analytical tools for understanding politics in sub-Saharan Africa. It follows the historical-institutional approach, and departs from the assumption that history matters. Thus, students will critically survey the key historical events (such as colonialism, decolonization, one-party state, democratization, among other issues), which have impacted overall political development in the continent. This course seeks to eradicate the overwhelmingly negative image of the continent, often the result of media reports, which may adversely influence a serious analysis of politics in Africa.
