Course Content

This course aims to provide the graduate students with a critical historical understanding on the changes in the form of political authority in relation to the so-called globalisation process. After a methodological and historical analysis on the development of the modern state in its bourgeois democratic as well as national forms until the 1980s, the course will scrutinize the social, economic and ideological bases of the ongoing transformations in the political field since then from a political economy perspective. In this regard, possible implications of global processes on the state will be discussed by focusing on the restructurings that have been taking place in state-society relationship, economic management and legal framework with a particular emphasis on their impact on democracy and nationhood.
