Primary Instructor:

Countries in contemporary sub-Saharan Africa vary greatly in their quality of democracy, the strength of the state, and levels of economic development. This course investigates the deep historical and more contemporary explanations for these diverse political and economic outcomes, through case studies of political development in particular countries, analyses of broader patterns for the continent as a whole, and consideration of Africa in the context of the broader developing world. The course will draw on works by political scientists, anthropologists, historians, economists, and journalists. Group discussions will be part of the course.

This course is in the Comparative Politics subfield.
