Course Description It is an exciting time to study local politics! In the age of partisan polarization and gridlock in Congress, city governments in the U.S. are emerging as a form of government at the forefront of policy change and innovation. Moreover, local elected offices are increasingly being created or strengthened throughout the developing world. Finally, with the rise of computational social science, field experiments and causal inference, much of cutting-edge political economy research is becoming local in nature and turning to city governments to take advantage of micro data and opportunities for quasi-experimental designs. This course will introduce you to the study of local politics in the U.S. and abroad. The focus on this class will be on politics rather than policies: we will focus on how local political institutions and political selection at the local level affect the balance of power and, ultimately, the policies adopted. The first part of the course will focus on U.S. Municipal government and study their impact on the day-today of citizens. We will explore city policies and their limits, the impulse toward reform of city governments in the U.S., and the effects of reform efforts on the distribution of power in and across communities. The second part of the course will explore local governments in a comparative perspective, with a focus on developing countries. Throughout, one goal of the course will be to help you familiarize and become informed consumers of state-of-the-art quantitative research in local political economy. At the end of the course students will produce a research paper exploring a topic of choice in local politics.
