Political leadership is a term we often hear from journalists, politicians, and even friends and family. It's commonly heard as part of the phrase "failure of political leadership." But, what does political leadership mean? If the concept of political leadership is to be useful, it has to mean more than "I think it's that politician's fault that I did not get my desired outcome." This course explores a variety of frameworks for understanding political leadership. We will address questions such as: What makes good or bad leadership? Does political leadership depend on context? What is the relationship between leadership and followership? Critically, it is not a course focused on American political leadership, but rather examines leadership in a range of different cross-national contexts.
