Course Description:
Researching Immigration and Western Muslim minorities This course introduces you to the literature and methods for researching the politics of/surrounding Western Muslim minorities. Individuals who practice the religion or who belong to ethnic groups that are traditionally Muslim are now estimated to make some 2% of the North American population and 5% of the European Union's population, and their numbers are expected to continue to grow. The attacks of September 11, 2001 and the wars that followed highlighted and amplified the role and perception of Muslim minorities in the West as political actors and electoral constituencies, subjects of cultural hostility, scapegoats for poor economic performance, suspects in the face of insecurity whose rights could be exceptionally curtailed, and agents for the projection of geopolitical power. Western states and their rapidly growing Muslim populations are adjusting to each other under the constant pressure of exogenous shocks. The way they manage the process will deeply affect Western polities and their relations with the Muslim world. Substantive topics we will explore include: How/why do different states strike a balance between security and civil rights/liberties? Is there really a tradeoff between the two? What shapes public attitudes towards (Muslim) immigration? How do institutions affect relations among the state, natives and Muslim minorities? How do Western publics see (Muslim) minorities in the context of the use of welfare benefits? How do they deal with immigration, both permitted and unregulated? What factors affect the degree of political participation by Western Muslims? Why are culture clashes more salient in some countries than in others? Why do Muslim immigrants prosper more economically in North America than in Europe? How do international conflicts affect the relationship between Western states and their Muslim citizens and the dynamics among citizens of different backgrounds? What is Islamophobia? Is there a connection between Islamophobia and anti-Semitism in the West? Are we witnessing the birth of a Western Muslim macro-ethnicity or many disjointed ethnic communities? How do Western Muslims perceive their fellow citizens? How do they mobilize politically? What factors affect the quality and quantity of their representation in politics? How do politics affect Muslim communities and individuals? What will the future hold? We will also discuss the application of research methods such as interviews, field research, experiments, institutional analysis, and survey analysis to produce convincing answers to these research questions. Of course, many of the skills and substantive issues we explore are relevant to understanding the political dynamics surrounding other minorities in the West.

POLS-Y 661:AMERICAN POLITICS (5675)

Credit Hours: 3.0 | CASE Requirement: None

Instructor: Fraga,Bernard L.
Day & Time: T 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Building & Room Number: Ballantine Hall 018

Course Description:
Electoral Politics and Political Participation This seminar examines American electoral politics and political participation, covering the decision to vote, the determinants of vote choice, and the relationship between individual behavior and election outcomes. We will begin by addressing various theoretical frameworks that help us understand the decisions that voters (and non-voters) make, but the bulk of the assigned readings will explore contemporary survey, observational, and experimental analyses of electoral behavior. We will also explore how recent work on elections challenges our understandings of both the canonical literature on elections and politics more broadly. As we will discuss what questions remain unresolved in the literature, and the ways in which novel data can help us understand political behavior better, the end product of the course will be a 15-25 page empirical research paper, to be completed by the student. Students will also receive feedback on their research in later weeks of the course, as they present their preliminary analyses in a format similar to what one would find at a major conference.
