Description
European Politics
First, the course offers an examination of classical concepts in comparative and European politics, such as electoral systems, political parties, federalism, and the welfare state. Next, we study the European Union, its history, institutions, and effects on European politics. Finally, at the very end of the semester we turn to the former Communist countries of Eastern Europe, discuss the recent regime transition that has occurred in many countries and consider the impact of the most recent enlargement on the European Union. Recommended Preparation: Junior standing or POLI 260.
