Description:
The course deals with the problem of economic prerequisites of democratization, which is a well-researched topic in comparative politics. Since the early 1960s there is an ongoing debate among political scientists on the relationship between economic development and establishing consolidated liberal democracies. A comparison of quantitative studies with large number of cases and qualitative historical studies with in-depth analysis of a small number of cases is given on the basis of Todd Landman s Issues and Methods in Comparative Politics.
Another focus of the course are problems and theories discussed in Ronald Inglehart s and Christian Welzel s book Modernization,Cultural Change and Democracy: the author s re-formulation of the modernization theory, the question how economic and social development affects value change and what is the link between modernization, value change and democratization. Finally, the question is raised about the origins and consequences of the financial and economic crises of 2008. A special emphasis is given to the problem of compatibility of capitalist economy, welfare state and democracy in Europe, based on analyses by Wolfgang Streeck and Claus Offe.
