PSCI 288
Transnational Political Movements Fall 2021
Division II

Class Details

This course focuses on the international dimensions of when people demand political change. We explore transnational dynamics of contentious politics, including how international actors shape domestic campaigns for democracy, peace, and justice, as well as how global advocacy movements (e.g. climate change) are organized and mobilized. Building from an international relations framework, the course brings together a variety of texts, including documentaries, social media, and guest speakers working on the front lines of global advocacy (refugee rights, anti-colonial liberation struggles, and contemporary pro-democracy movements). We critically analyze how external actors and resources inform politics on the ground, both around the world and over time, as well as evaluate the normative implications of “foreign intervention.”
