Political Economy of Industrial Democracies
The changes taking place in the world capitalist system have had their roots in advanced capitalist societies. But these changes have also produced profound restructuring of these societies, undermining the political arrangements that emerged in the postwar period, while putting all manner of new items on the political agenda. This course explores the key aspects of this transformation, with emphasis on Western Europe, but may also include evidence from U.S. and/or Japanese cases.
