Subfields: Comparative Politics

Comparative Politics oc­cupies the dynamic boundary between general theoretical perspectives and systematic engagement with specific cases. IU faculty examine such topics as political economy, democratization, political institutions, parties and elections, contentious politics, contemporary autocracy, minorities and immigration, and the effects of divisions brought on by race, ethnicity, class, and gender. Though we study an array of issues, and employ different method­ologies, we share the underlying aim of developing theoretically grounded understandings of political phenomena.  Our faculty publish in a range of visible outlets, including prestigious university presses and top scientific journals.  Many have won prestigious awards for their scholarship and are on the cutting edge of their specialization.
