Course Description and Aims

Comparative political economy is the study of whether and how political context has any
impacts on economic policy choice and performance. The purpose of this course is to
introduce theoretical tools in comparative political economy to analyze China's political and
economic development. In this course, we are interested in the research contributed by China
specialists, as well as the issues that have attracted attention beyond them. We aim to create
dialogues between China studies and the theories that have been developed by other
comparativists.


Course Mechanics
This is a seminar. Students should come to class prepared to engage in a lively and open
discussion based on the week's readings. Each week, two to three students will be asked to
serve as the leading discussants for the class.


Requirements and Grading
1. Class participation (25% of the total grade)
2. The leading of class discussion (25% of the total grade)
3. At the end of the semester, you are expected to write a research paper or proposal
(approximately 20–25 pages) due two weeks after the course ends. This will be worth 50% of
the total grade. I urge you to begin discussing your ideas with me as soon as possible. (The
draft of the paper is to be presented in the final two weeks.)
