POLT 316 - Post-Communist Transformations

FC SSCI CD
4 credits
The attempt to transform the communist societies of Russia and Eastern Europe into capitalist democracies has been revolutionary and traumatic. Among the questions we will investigate: Why have some countries adopted Western norms of democracy and liberal capitalism, while others have moved toward nationalism, authoritarianism, and conflict? Who were the winners and losers during this transformation? In what ways do the institutional and cultural legacies of the communist era continue to impact post-Communist societies?
