Enduring Global and American Issues
GOVT 3071
D. Silbey
Monday and Wednesday 6:30pm - 9:10pm
4 credits

The US and the global community face a number of complex, interconnected and enduring issues that pose challenges for our political and policy governance institutions and society at large.  These include sustainability, social justice, technology, public health, security and conflict, and globalization, among others. Students will investigate these issues, and the challenges they pose, through weekly case studies, class discussions, lectures and guest speakers, guided by a number of robust and generalizable analytical frameworks.
