This course introduces students to the diverse institutions that shape politics, society and economics in a number of European countries. It seeks to explain why political, social and economy diversity exists in Europe and why it matters. In doing so it identifies differences and commonalities in the organisation of politics and society in several countries, how peculiar national institutions came into existence and whether different national institutions are compatible within integrated political structures and markets. Geographically and chronologically the course focuses on postwar Britain, France and West Germany, although it makes reference to other examples. 100% internal assessment. This course may also be able to be taken towards a major in INTP. See major requirements for details.
