Discussing politics in a comparative perspective is the essential goal of this course. Comparing political systems and cultures in different countries and continents will enable students to adopt an objective and impartial notion of politics. Comparing different political traditions necessitates to look at the historical backgrounds of different countries, continents and civilizations. For instance the political culture of the United States of America can be better understood when we look at the founding dynamics of AmericaThe liberal democratic culture in Europe can not be explained regardless of the history of eternal economical and political struggles in those countries including the Industrial Revolution and French Revolution. In those respects, this course will adopt historical, contextual, systematic, global-economic and global-cultural approaches to enable students to gain multidimensional comparative skills while studying the politics in the international level.
