PS 1378 - Building Democracy Around The World

Developing a new democracy is a process, with at least two main parts. First the country must move away from authoritarian rule. The first part of the course, therefore, will examine why (or why not) countries make that transition and how they do so. The second part of the course will then examine why some countries are more successful in their transition, based on an examination of civil society and the types of political institutions (such as political parties, the executive system, and the judiciary) that countries develop. What influences these choices and how do these choices affect success and stability of the new democracy? Has international aid been successful in helping countries develop democratic practices?
