Latin American Politics

POSC-382

The course focuses on themes of political culture, civil society, institutions and policy-making processes and policy issues as these relate to the consolidation of democracy in Latin America and the Caribbean. Some emphasis will be placed on the larger countries in the region. Lectures will be presented on much of the material assigned in the course reading schedule. At times a seminar-discussion format in a collective search and evaluation of the reading assignments will be used.
