Have you ever wondered which form of government is the best to run a country? Or maybe you have wondered why people are so against communism or democracy? In fact, is democracy the best government for every country in the world? In Comparative World Government we explore the various types of government systems that are seen around the world including: democracy, socialism, authoritarian, etc.… We also gain a deeper understanding by examining the positives and negatives of each governing method as well as look at how countries are formed and how economics, violence, and globalization influence not only us, but decisions that are being made by those who are in power.

The assignments were interesting and clear. I had no problems with understanding the course and what I needed to do when.
I really enjoyed the articles we had to read and the videos we had to watch.
It is a very well organized course
