Course Description

Latin American Politics focuses on the relationship between politics, economics and societal developments over time. The theoretically developed approach to Latin American Politics focuses on the study of political institutions: their effects on party development, presidential-legislative interaction, policy choice and the way these institutions are chosen. Additionally, it is important in most contexts to look at the military interventions in politics throughout this region during much of the twentieth century. Therefore, this course analyzes the domestic as well as international effects on development - political, social and economic while evaluating the unique experiences of each nation-state that is considered part of Latin America.
