GOVT 40.19 State-building in the Middle East and North Africa

Trying to explain the differential outcomes of the Arab Spring uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa, this course analyzes the legacy of state-building in the Middle East and North Africa.  It  argues that the impact of colonialism, of the type of financial resources at the disposal of local governments, and of the emergence (or lack thereof) of durable state institutions proved instrumental in whether or not local governments were able to construct modern states.

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.
