Comparison of two countries from the third world (Chile and Bangladesh)
A comparison of two countries from the third world (Chile and Bangladesh), to asses the political and economic prospects for the future. Some preliminary concerns that need to be evaluated include: the level of political stability, the degree of prosperity, the influence of political culture, the role played by history, the influence of leadership and the many intervening forces like religion, insurgency, military rule, and even outside influences including colonial masters, dominant outside (like the US) superpower and even international organizations like the IMF or the UN.
The objective of the assignment is to get an appropriate picture of the political systems of the two countries. In addition, a detailed survey of the systems allows for a comparative analysis of what is similar and different and what accounts for the respective similarities or differences between the two countries. What conclusions can one draw from your findings: are there really common experiences for these countries like colonialism of yester-years and neocolonialism of today or is the third world so obviously broad and amorphous that common characteristics do not exist.
Integrate some concepts and ideas such as Third world, leadership types, the changing role of political parties and other institutions, as well as consolidated versus procedural democracies, wherever these are applicable. Also include attention to the on-going developments within the countries.
