Topic: Politics of developing world
Topic: POLITICS OF THE DEVELOPING WORLD. What is a "developing" country? Often also referred to as "non-western" or part of the "third-world," this course will explore definitions of these terms and the politics of countries that are typically categorized as developing, including the broader power dynamics that influence these politics. Central to our discussions will be definitions of democracy and autocracy and what these look like in the developing world, globalization and colonization, human rights, and the media. Although the course is about the politics of the developing world, it is inevitable that we should discuss the politics of the developed world, as well, given the historical and contemporary relationships between the developing and developed world.
