Case Studies for Politics

Synopsis
Case studies for teaching politics, using a student-centred, problem-based method pioneered at the Harvard Business School. ‘Cases’ are based on real, disguised or imaginary problems which students are required to resolve on their own or in groups. Each case consists of a specially researched and written document which provides all the main information needed to both understand and assess the problem.
