POS 342 - CONTEMPORARY CIVIL WARS

This course introduces students to the scientific study of modern civil wars, with specific focus on their inception, the dynamics of violence, and the challenge of political order. In the process, the course will address the principal debates of the subfield, including, but not limited to, the role of class, ethnicity, regime type, and repression. Although principally within political science, the course draws on theory and scholarship from related disciplines, especially sociology and economics.
