Primary Instructor:

This course examines the problem of how politicians and policies are selected by citizens. The mechanics of elections (rules, procedures) have enormous impact on what sorts of choices voters are offered, what sorts of coalitions politicians form, whose interests get represented in the policymaking process, and, ultimately, what policies are chosen. For this reason, politicians fight tenaciously to shape the rules under which they compete. This course will investigate what rules matter, and why, and will draw from a broad array of cases to examine the most important issues at stake in current electoral reforms, both in the United States and abroad.

This course in the Comparative Politics subfield.
