POL1013 Comparative Politics [3].

Comparative politics is a subfield within the systematic study of politics. It is primarily concerned with the examination of the domestic politics of countries and people. It uses multiple theoretical tools to analyze countries so that comparative insights and knowledge can be uncovered. Some of these tools include evaluating an individual country's political economy, culture, institutional structures, regime type, and historical context.
