POL 295-02 - Special Topic: Politics of Gender in Developing Countries

4 credits (Spring)
We have seen the rise of strong female political leaders like Benazir Bhutto in Pakistan, and in Rwanda 64% of seats in the lower house of the National Legislature belong to women. Yet discrimination against women in terms of legal, political, and social rights persists. This course is designed to investigate the complexities of gender and women in developing countries through topics like gendered conflict and violence; economic development; and political participation.

Prerequisite: POL 101 .
Instructor: Schoenecker
