Your Research Paper Topic is:
Advocates of “globalization” suggest that the rapid introduction of free market economics will transform authoritarian political systems into democracies. Indeed, in the early 1990s, a team of Western economists attempted to transform this theory into reality in Russia. China is frequently cited as an example of a state whose political order faces challenges in maintaining one-party Communist rule as the economy becomes more integrated with the free-market economies of the West. Comparative politics seeks to better understand the relationship between economics and politics in an age of in which technology and markets are rapidly becoming more connected.
For your research paper, compare the recent (last 25 years) evolution of the economies and political systems of TWO of the following states: Brazil, China, Mexico, Russia, India, and Iran. In your comparison, focus as much as possible on changes in POLITICAL CULTURE and changes in the way the FUNCTIONS OF SOCIALIZATION AND INTEREST ARTICULATION are performed. Conclude by analyzing the political impact of the last 25 years of economic change. AVOID AT ALL COSTS A STATIC HIGH SCHOOL ANALYSIS OF THE IMPACTED INSTITUTIONS. INSTEAD, LOOK BENEATH THE FORMAL VENEER OF STRUCTURE AND INTO THE ACTUAL POLITICAL PROCESS. (For example, what is the role of money, of family, of old boy networks? How have these roles changed with the changing economic realities?) You may discuss structural changes as well, but not without a thorough analysis of the changing political processes taking place at a deeper and usually more significant level.
