  • Overview


    This course explores issues of development, the state, and democracy within the Mediterranean region with a special attention to Southern Europe, North Africa, and Turkey (from a comparative perspective). In this exploration we will pay attention to issues of Modernity and its significance and connection to development, the state, and democracy. The religion-politics duality is of essence throughout the semester. A cultural component (films, related to Mediterranean political issues) will be part of this course.
