教育目標

This Course is designed for undergraduate students to the study of comparative politics, which is defined as the study of domestic politics anywhere in the world. Comparative politics is both subject and method. Subjectively, we study the structures, processes, and outcomes of domestic politics in countries concerned; and methodologically, we learn not simply by studying other countries, but rather by systematically comparing and constrasting their political processes and structures to derive more general knowledge. In against this backdrop, this course will be looking closely at the governments of so-called developed countries(ie.,Great Britian,France,US, japan)and newly developing countries(ie.,China, Brazil.etc.),in the hope to understand why different countries have developed different kinds of governments and whether all of this makes any difference, and furthermore, to explain cross-national differences in political practices and outcomes through reference to different cultural values.

課程概述

本課程內容主要在介紹當今主要國家的政府與政治體制,其中包括工業化民主國家英國、法國,德國、日本等;共產及後共產國家俄羅斯、中共等;以及開發中國家印度、墨西哥等。藉由比較這些國家的政府體制(行政、立法、司法、文官)與政治體制(政黨、利益團體)上的差異,以及實際政治(政治參與、政治引用、政府決策)運作上的不同,來說明影響政府體制及其實際政治運作的原因為何,以期學生具備相關的政治知識,分析判斷與公共服務的能力。
