Comparative Politics

An introduction to Comparative Politics, a sub-field within the broader discipline of Political Studies. As the name suggests, Comparative Politics typically involves some element of comparison. The focus is usually on domestic politics (i.e. politics within states rather than between states). In this course, we will focus particularly on democracy. We are going to be thinking about what democracy is and then comparing four countries (Brazil, India, United States of America and South Africa) which are usually considered democracies.
