Developing and Advocating for a Policy

Term Project: Developing and Advocating for a Policy

The term project this year will be divided into four parts.  The goal of the project is to allow you to choose a current international policy issue, and become an expert and an advocate for a particular policy solution.  This is a project that will cover the entire semester.  It is worth 50% of your final grade, so work hard!

Students will have their choice of topics to address.  Students should feel free to address any topic, even if it is not covered in the syllabus, provided they can justify its classification as an issue of international policy.  Students in the past have addressed various topics ranging from trade policy, national security, human rights, war and peace, and human trafficking, among others.  If it is occurring at the international level (meaning you are not allowed to address primarily domestic issues), it is fair game.
