PSCI 388
Comparative Political Economy Spring 2021
Division II
Cross-listed PSCI 388 / POEC 388

Class Details

This seminar examines the relationships between broad economic structures and political institutions. We consider why and how the spread of capitalism led to the birth of democracy in some countries, but dictatorships in others? Here we look closely at whether it is economic development which leads to the spread of democracy. Or whether it is economic crises which make the movement to democracy possible. Finally, we examine whether the emergence of a neoliberal economic order has affected the organization of political society?
