Class Description:
A central tenet of democracy is the equal and just representation of its citizens. Yet, democracies around the world only unevenly represent their citizens - whether measured by the make-up of their political representatives or by the substance of their political agendas. This course is global in scope; it approaches the intersecting issues of gender, race and political representation through the study of cross-national evidence and comparative country studies from around the world in order to identify the best practices for strengthening the representation of under-represented groups. This course begins with an introduction to alternative theories of representation in a democratic society; including what constitutes representation and how an ideal democratic society should represent its citizens. The course then asks students to grapple with the concepts of gender and race; both what these are and how these have historically shape political representation. The course offers students the opportunity to engage with scholarship on how and why most democratic systems unevenly represent women and racial and ethnic minorities in political office, and the consequences of this under representation for political agendas. The core of the course focuses on the individual, structural factors and institutional factors that have been attributed to increasing the election and appointment of underrepresented groups as well as the representation of their interests on policy agendas at a variety of levels of governance.
Who Should Take This Class?:
Students interested in electoral systems and in how to achieve more robust, inclusive democracies.

This course fulfills an optional course requirement for four concentrations for Master of Public Policy students: Gender and Public Policy, Global Policy, Politics and Governance, and Social Policy. For more see: Master of Public Policy.
Learning Objectives:
1. to develop a better understanding of how and why different groups, in particular women and racial or ethnic minorities, are often represented unevenly in democratic societies and the normative and ethical implications of uneven representation.
2. to understand the individual,
structural and institutional factors that that have been key to improved political representation of traditionally underrepresented groups.

3. to understand the role of cultural and political context as well as global position for patterns of political representation and the options available to change these patterns.

4.to analyze, synthesize, and think critically about problems of democratic representation.
