Kommentar

This course examines state capacity as discussed in various literatures. We start from a more general introduction of the concept and its definitions, which have been used in scholarly debates dating the emergence of the state in medieval times versus the early 19th century. Afterwards, we will read and discuss major works analyzing the dynamics and consequences of such state capacity for democratization (and economic growth), with an empirical emphasis on European countries.
