CPOL-1300 Introduction to Colombian politics

This introductory course is the starting point to understand the Area of Colombian Politics as a key component within the undergraduate program offered by the Department of Political Sciences of Universidad de los Andes. First of all, we will apply several basic concepts from political sciences to the Colombian political process. Furthermore, we seek to explore the political, economic and social conditions that characterized the structuring of the Republic of Colombia and its evolution during the 20th century. We intend to familiarize our students with some of the most important historic concepts on political science, and allow them to understand its complexities, features and impacts on the current political development.
