GOVT 533 - Authoritarianism & Hybrid Regi
While some thought that the end of the Cold War signaled the triumph of liberal democracy, much of the world’s population still lives under various forms of non-democratic rule. How do dictators maintain compliance among regime elites and the broader public? How are authoritarian regimes affected by a globalizing economy and the profusion of new media outlets? Many contemporary autocracies incorporate quasi-democratic institutions, such as elections. How does this impact political stability? In this graduate seminar, we explore such questions by looking in detail at what authoritarianism is, how it differs from democracy, and how various types of non-democracies structure power.
