More than half of the world’s population lives under some form of autocracy. Authoritarian regimes feature prominently in international conflict, human rights abuses, and economic exploitation. We will examine variation in authoritarian regimes and how they stay in power. All assigned book chapters will be available on the course website; students should access academic articles through Google Scholar. The course will consist of a two-hour seminar. This course is in the Comparative Politics subfield.
