DC Policy Research Proposal

"Your proposal must follow standard guidelines for research proposals; it must be as focused as possible, and set up a serious research agenda for a specific human rights case or issue that calls for U.S. foreign policy.  The call for U.S. foreign policy could be just as much for the U.S. to stop doing something or enacting a specific policy as it could be for the U.S. to affirmatively act – the key thing is that this topic must involve a foreign policy choice.  For the purposes of this class remember that the actual project you will eventually submit will be a 20-25 page research paper due at the end of the fall quarter.  This paper will follow the same guidelines (below) as the proposal."

Information Resources
