This course deals with the principles, theories and the practice of Comparative Politics. Its

following main themes: theories of comparative politics, analytical and methodological
approaches, political construct of states and nation states, political regimes, and political
economy. Within these broad themes the debates – such as scienticity of social science,
causes of development and underdevelopment, nations and nationalism, causes of social
unrest and ethno-national movements, political institutions and regimes, political culture
and behaviour, democratisation and authoritarianism – will be dealt.
