GOVT 85.11 Nation-Building

Is it possible to create stable states in the international system by force? This course will examine typologies, theories, and case studies of forcible attempts to create secure and economically productive states. The class will critically assess state building processes such as internal security, political legitimacy, interim governance, and counterinsurgency. It will examine territories that were administered by the British Empire, those that have been administered by the United States (such as the Philippines, Japan, Germany, Vietnam, and Iraq), and those that have been administered by the United Nations (such as Kosovo and East Timor).

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
