What Went Wrong? A Post Mortem of Political Disasters, Catastrophic Policy Failures, and Epic Marches of Folly
Why do individuals, groups, and societies continue to be the source of catastrophes they could have seen coming? This course explores the record of avoidable disasters across different levels of analysis, from the local to the international, in an attempt to answer this question. While investigating 'What Went Wrong?' students will be introduced to core political science theories and basic social science research skills.
