POL 395-01 - Advanced Special Topic: Islam and Politics

4 credits (Fall)
Why are so few Muslim-majority countries democratic? Are Muslims more prone to political violence than non-Muslims? Are Islamic parties and organizations a threat or a resource for open politics? This course will address these and other questions by analyzing the political regimes in Muslim-majority countries.

Prerequisite: A 200-level course in comparative politics. Previous coursework in statistics (MAT 115  or MAT 209 ) is highly recommended.
Instructor: Lussier
