Kommentar

The question of political power is one of the core interests in political science. Unfortunately, the focus on sub-Saharan Africa is less popular. Therefore, this seminar provides an introductory insight into power and state in Africa, combining reflections on the history of the continent and current case studies.

The course will follow the questions: How to analyse political power? What are certain conditions of political power in the African context? Which role played and still plays state formation? What does political power look like in current cases? We want to answer these questions via the study of selected literature, small group activities, group discussions and student’s presentations. In order to gain a sufficient overview of current cases, students will also develop a wiki on moodle.

 

Previous knowledge about sub-Saharan Africa is not required.

Registration via PULS and Moodle.
