GOVT-340 Dept Sem: State Building
Spring for 2015-2016
This course focuses on the politics that bring about reconstruction in impoverished, often conflict-ridden states. Why do some governments bring about recovery in their states while others are unable to turn around the collapse? We will study models of reconstruction, such as autonomous recovery, shared sovereignty, and UN Transitional Administrations. We will evaluate the logic and evidence supporting these models by analyzing cases of state-building success and failure.
