White Hall 102
This is an introductory course on the politics and governments of Eastern Europe. It assumes no prior knowledge of the region, but students are expected to have some background in political science (for example, POLS 110 or 120). The course is structured chronologically, with emphasis on the democratization processes initiated in 1989. Both domestic politics (institution-building, parties and ideologies, economic transformation) and trans-national issues (European integration, migration, security) will be discussed. The geographic focus will be mainly on East-Central Europe (Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary) and the Balkans (Bulgaria, Romania, Albania and former Yugoslavia).
