This course has been renumbered effective Fall 2014. A studebt who earned credit for GOVT121 Comparative Political Systems in a prior term should not enrol and cannor earn credit in this course.
This course offers a broad introduction to comparative politics, the subfield of political science concerned mainly with political ideas, institutions, and behavior within states. The course examines such themes as the origins and functions of states, formal institutions such as legislatures and executives, the variety and impact of electoral systems, the nature of democracy and autocracy, internal and external challenges to political order, and the impact of international and domestic factors on state performance. The course objectives are the following:
Ø  To provide students with an understanding of modern political systems by looking comparatively and in-depth at a large variety of countries.
Ø  Introduce students to the basic premises and core concepts of leading schools of thought and interpretation in the study of comparative politics, including such common terms as democratization, authoritarianism, the state, political institutions, and civil society.
Ø  To familiarize students with important variations in the governmental institutions, norms, events and practices of contemporary nation states.
Ø  To expose students to current research on the effects of different types of institutional settings on the political process and on policy outcomes.
Ø  To sharpen students’ analytical skills of information gather, conceptual definition and systematic organization and presentation of ideas both in writing and orally.
Ø  To provide students with the necessary tools to exercise a critical understanding of current affairs in the world.

Comparative Political Systems - 31061 - GOVT 040 - 71
This course has been renumbered effective Fall 2014. A studebt who earned credit for GOVT121 Comparative Political Systems in a prior term should not enrol and cannor earn credit in this course.
This course introduces students to the comparative study of politics. By necessity, it includes examination of the histories, institutions, trends, leaderships, ideologies, and controversial issues of selected nation states in various parts of the world. It will expose students to leading social science perspectives and theories informing our understanding of comparative politics. It will also aid students in acquiring a basic appreciation of the methods and approaches used by political scientists for deriving generalizations about the political differences and similarities among nations. 

It is a survey course and a foundations course, meant to equip students with the specialized vocabulary, knowledge, and analytical tools they will need as they move on to more advanced and specialized subjects in this field. The course has four primary objectives: 
(1) to introduce students to the basic premises and core concepts of leading schools of thought and interpretation in the study of comparative politics, including such common terms as democratization, authoritarianism, the state, political institutions, political culture, political development, civil society, social capital, and political economy, but also less familiar terms such as rentierism, high modernism, social legibility, and practical knowledge; 
(2) to familiarize students with important variations in the governmental institutions, norms, events and practices of contemporary nation states; 
(3) to develop in students the capacity to identify and critically examine arguments and counter-arguments in discussions of important issues and trends in comparative politics; and 
(4) to sharpen student analytical skills of information-gathering, conceptual definition, and systematic organization and presentation of ideas. 

Besides furnishing students with greater ability to undertake intelligent assessment of the contemporary politics of the world’s nation states, this course aims, along the way, to instill in students a passionate awareness of both the urgency and excitement that lies ahead of them in the study of comparative politics. 

This course is open to SFS-Qatar students only. 

This course has been renumbered, effective Fall 2014. A student who earned credit for GOVT 121 Comparative Political Systems in a prior term should not enroll and cannot earn credit in this class.
