Problems of Promoting Regime Change and Democracy

IWP 629
Four credits

In exploring the role of democracy in world politics, this course integrates insights from the international relations and comparative politics fields. The course will examine: the "democratic peace" - whether there is a peculiarly pacific or cooperative relationship between democracies, and if so why; democratization-building blocks for and problems associated with nations democratizing; and democracy-promotion-whether is it practical or ethical for the world's democracies to seek to enlarge their number, and if so by what means.
