Abstract

This panel explores the trajectories and various meanings of the concept of the political regime (or political system) in diverse traditions in the History of Political Thought and Political Science. It looks at how the concept of the political regime served as the fulcrum for discourse on comparative government and the emergence of comparative politics in the context of American behaviouralism in political science and the various responses to the parochialistic tendencies of that tradition. The panel will include papers that highlight the ways key figures in the history of political thought laid the groundwork for the comparative investigation of diverse forms of political organisation and regime types or constitutions.
