Historical Study A-12. International Conflict and Cooperation in the Modern World
Why do states wage war? Why do they cooperate? Have the answers changed historically? Are economic globalization, ecological interdependence, and global civil society eroding traditional state sovereignty? Or do nationalism, protectionism, and power politics firmly limit the spread of world order? The course begins with the Peloponnesian War, the European state system, imperialism, the spread of free trade, and the two World Wars. It continues after 1945 with the spread of democracy and human rights, trade liberalization, international law, and ecological cooperation, as well as enduring sources of conflicts like the Cold War, nuclear weapons, civil strife, and rogue states.

Government 2009. Methods of Political Analysis
This course explores the issues of research design vital to doctoral students planning to undertake empirical research in political science, including issues associated with conceptualization, measurement, comparison, selection of cases, and establishing causal relationships, as well as some of the deeper dilemmas of understanding a complex, multicausal world. Each week we read some articles on these issues and examples of efforts to resolve them with a view to building up good instincts for research strategy. (Graduate seminar.) Click here for syllabus.

Government 2180. Democracy and Accountability in the New Europe
Is there a “democratic deficit” in Europe? Political decisions are increasingly delegated to insulated, non-majoritarian institutions, national bureaucracies, constitutional courts, central banks, and international organizations. In what sense are administrators, judges, diplomats, and chief executives democratically accountable? What are the political consequences? The course looks to positive and normative theory, as well as empirical material drawn from European integration, Central European democratic transitions, and West European political development, with assistance from visiting senior European scholars. (Graduate seminar.) Click here for syllabus.
