World Governments

ACADEMIC WORLD GOVERNMENTS

 

World Governments will examine the purpose of government and compare the basic philosophies and structures of government in five countries, with special emphasis on the United States. We will explore the rights and responsibilities of citizenship and current issues that cause conflict in each of the places we study.
