Course Syllabus

Abstract

Cities constitute the backbone of modern politics: from the Ancient Greek's polis to contemporary metropolis and global cities, they provide space and resources for major political battles and mundane everydaylife operations. The elective course on Power and Urban Politics is designed for BA-level students of "Political Science and World Politics" program. It covers theoretical and methodological foundations of studying the cities as well as policy implications for urban development and institutional design of urban governance. Students will learn about the varieties of theoretical approaches to urban politics and build their own analytical kit for assessing urban policy instruments and their implementation. Also, they will discuss critical challenges faced by the cities and propose promising re-sponses that can make our cities better places for living and acting politically.
