Is the idea of the three branches of government an outdated artifact – or is it still viable in times of complex regulation, privatization, and the internationalization of public law? Drawing extensively on student participation the course will explore current issues and problems in separation of powers and checks and balances in established and new democracies.

Assessment is based on class participation, oral assignments (in-class presentation and a negotiation exercise) and a final research paper.
