This course is designed to provide students with the necessary theoretical and empirical background for study of the modern civil society. The focus of the in-class consideration and discussion is on civil spaces shaped by societal contexts resulted from the non-western, non-democratic historical past. Course will cover a broad set of issues including: conceptual history of civil society and discussion of the modern civil society theories; links between civil society, democracy, democratization and development; concept and practices of “illiberal” civil society; political implications of contemporary social movements; and dynamics of civil space in post-authoritarian, post-communist and post-colonial societies across the globe.
