Democratic to Authoritarian Rule
This course is based on a series of lectures offered through the University of Michigan’s Teach-Out Series on the EdX platform. The goals of the course are: 1) understand political changes by thinking systematically about different kinds of impediments to democratic politics and decision making; 2) become familiar with steps through which political systems move toward greater authoritarian rule; 3) learn frameworks to assess how contemporary changes relate to democratic vs. authoritarian tendencies; and 4) interact with others for greater critical appreciation of changing political structures and processes. Participants will listen to lectures from a variety of experts, then engage in discussion. Additional materials might be included. Karen Bantel was a professor and consultant in business strategy and entrepreneurship.
