2017年度 法学部 0117968 特別講義 Politics and Public Policy(外国語科目) 前田 健太郎
横断型

This course is a general introduction to political science. We will survey a wide range of topics in order to acquaint students with the basic concepts and theories that are useful for understanding politics in the modern world. Since political science is a vast discipline, our coverage is limited to the most important topics. Students will learn why politics has been considered as a crucial aspect of human life, how political decisions are made, and how those decisions are related to the fundamental goals of our society such as freedom, equality, and justice.
