Please read over the requirements for the Weeks 6 and 8 assignments before selecting an issue to focus on for the policy analysis and recommendation. Please take into account any feedback you receive. It is important to select an issue that meets the following criteria.
Issue Selection for Policy Analysis and Recommendation Assignment:
The issue addressed should be a legitimate contemporary policy issue, and the current policy on that issue should be clearly identifiable.
There should be clear and viable alternatives to the current policy.
There must be sufficient data to provide the target audience (i.e. the decision maker) with information to make a decision on the policy proposal.
Examples of policy issues:
Economic Issues: Initiation of trade agreements; support for or opposition to protectionist legislation; relaxation or tightening of immigration or customs laws in a particular country or region.
Legal Issues: Adherence to or rejection of new facets of international law, maritime law, intellectual property rights, etc.; jurisdictions of international courts; implications for acceptance of or rejection of a proposed treaty or agreement.
Political Issues: Matters pertaining to recognition (e.g., after a coup or revolution); participation in international conferences; a newly elected leader’s policy issues; initiation of a new policy involving human rights, environmental standards, etc.
Security Issues: New arms transfer control initiatives; security assistance changes or new recipient candidates; re-negotiations or an initial negotiation of case rights agreements.
