PG 344 - Democratization in the Developing World

This course will focus on the causes and challenges of establishing and consolidating democracy. We will cover the countries that have established democracy in the post-World War II period, with emphasis on the most recent wave of democratization starting in the 1970s. Therefore, the course will cover mostly developing countries, rather than the advanced industrialized democracies in Western Europe and North America. Students will become experts on a particular country, reporting on how it progressed through the various phases of democratization, and putting its experience in the context of theories of democratization and democratic consolidation.
