GOVT 84.16 Rebel Governance During the Civil War

In this course, we describe, compare and analyze the governments that guerrillas and other rebels create for people living in the territories they control in the midst of civil wars. Why do rebels do it? What kinds of governments do they form? Are these governments different from those run by states recognized in the international system? Since rebels are usually weaker than the states they challenge, why wouldn't they put all their resources into the war? Is ideology important in explaining why rebels form governments and how they shape those governments? Do guerrillas interested in winning the "hearts and minds" of local residents set up different sorts of governments than warlords? Do rebels who fight for secession of their region make different types of governments from insurgents who want to take over the state? Can civilians influence the governments that rebels set up?
