SPI 593H

Info tab content
This course investigates how ethnic diversity influences policymaking and how state institutions structure ethnic politics; why and how ethnic diversity shapes individuals' and groups' beliefs, preferences, and behaviors in ways that influence the formulation of policy; and also examines sources of inter-group conflict and how policies can help ameliorate or exacerbate such conflict, focusing on immigration policy, multiculturalism, and state institutions that raise or lower the salience of ethnic identity. Topics and readings cover advanced industrialized democracies as well as economically and politically developing countries.
