IS 434WX - Authoritarianism

Lecture Hours: 3
Lab Hours: 0
Credit Hours: 3

Authoritarian rule has been the norm throughout human history. Despite recent waves of democratization, today roughly half of the global population lives under non-democratic regimes. In this course, we will investigate the politics of authoritarian regimes. We will pay particular attention to where and why these regimes are established, what sustains them, and when and how they decline. Note: Writing Intensive (W) and Civilizations & Cultures Course (X).
