Description

This course surveys contemporary research on political behavior from the comparative politics and political economy of development fields. We focus in particular on research that addresses three main outcome variables: (1) vote choice, (2) turnout, and (3) protest and other forms of contentious participation. Readings are drawn from research on all world regions, but special emphasis will be placed on political behavior in developing countries. Class discussions and assignments will focus on helping graduate students both understand the core theoretical arguments underpinning existing research on political behavior and develop actionable research designs in pursuit of their own research agendas.
