Democracy in Developing Countries
GOVT 275
Fall 2006
Section: 01  

During the last two decades a trend toward increased democracy has swept through the developing world. This trend was late in coming, however, and has left many countries virtually untouched. In addition, the events of recent years have often underscored the fragility and superficiality of new democracies. This course will explore the challenges of establishing, maintaining and deepening democratic regimes in the developing world, with some emphasis on recent processes of democratization. We will explore general conceptual and theoretical questions, as well as examining the experiences of three specific countries: Argentina, Egypt and Nigeria.
