Description: In this course, we explore the conceptual meanings of democracy and representation, and then examine the theoretical and empirical linkages between citizen preferences, electoral systems, executive and legislative institutions, policymaking and advance industrial democracies. The aim of the course is to understand how citizen preferences ultimately get translated into policy outcomes and how political institutions shape this relationship.
