States around the world struggle with many of the same policy issues and challenges. As they search for the best policy solutions, they look to other states, epistemic communities and even their own histories for ideas, while recognizing differences in national political cultures and circumstances. This course introduces students to the methods used to compare the public policies of various countries, using case studies of common issues to explore the interplay of political environments, national realities and policy options.
Prerequisite(s): 12 credit units of POLS and/or IS; or 36 credit units at the university level, including at least 6 credit units of ANTH, ENG, HIST, INDG, IS, POLS, RLST, SOC, or WGST.
