Politics

Why are some countries becoming democratic while democracy is failing in others? How is political power distributed in different societies around the world? How has globalisation reshaped state and market institutions in different countries? Why do different countries have different political systems? Why have far-right parties been successful in increasing their electoral support in some countries but not in others? When do social protests against governments emerge and when do they succeed? In today’s increasingly interconnected world, understanding the central issues and trends that characterise twenty-first century politics requires students to look beyond the borders of any single nation and adopt a global perspective.
