LATI 246 - Comparative Democratization

Cross-Listed as POLI 246 
This course focuses on theories of democratic breakdown, regime transitions, and democratization in Southern Europe, Latin America, and Post-Communist Europe. Some of the cases we will study include Pinochet’s coup and Chile’s return to elections, Fujimori’s “self-coup” in Peru, the rise of Solidarity in Poland, the breakdown and return of democracy in Spain, and the end of the South African apartheid regime. Building on the literatures on transitions, consolidation, civil society, and constitutional design, the course culminates in a simulation of institution building in Iraq. Offered every year. Prerequisite(s): POLI 140  or LATI 141  recommended (4 Credits)
