This unit aims to give students a comparative understanding of the political systems in various countries of the world today. The unit will draw upon practices and experiences across such countries as the USA, India, Japan, Canada, Britain, Germany, Russia and Australia. In so doing it will help students see how nations solve the core political problem of making collective decisions, with close attention to the similarities and differences between countries. This comparative approach seeks to broaden and enhance students understanding and explanation of the political world. It will also help them understand politics from the viewpoint of participants of the countries concerned. At the same time, learning more about other political systems will improve students understanding of their own country.
