Over the last twenty-five years, many countries have undertaken transitions from dictatorship to democracy. At the same time, democracy has become dilapidated in old, established regimes after fifty or so years of experimentation with universal suffrage and passive citizenship. This unit takes a comparative approach to studying how divisions of class, gender, race and culture have complicated the practice of democracy and citizenship in different regimes and various countries during the twentieth century. It also looks at the prospects of democracy and citizenship beyond the nation state.
