Course Description

The course will have an eclectic approach and rely on both qualitative readings and formal models to study themes related to state formation, conflict, the development of state capacity, the role of economic and political elites in weakly institutionalized settings, themes of political persistence, and the formation and control of public bureaucracies.

This course counts toward completion of the course-out option in Models and Politics.

Knowledge of game theory at the level of PS232A will be assumed
