Final Assignment Instructions
The ability to
conduct research on an issue, write a detailed memorandum, and provide a
briefing to your superior or a group of leaders about the issue is vitally
important if you work in the field of law or public policy. This term you will
be conducting research and preparing an outline to assist you as you prepare
your presentation and final policy briefing paper to convey information you
learned through your research over the past seven weeks. We have reached the
end of the course where you will apply the concepts, principles, and themes you
have learned over the past seven weeks to your analysis of the issue you have
selected. This week you are to finally prepare and submit your formal analysis
and recommendations to address one of the issues presented at the start of the
United States Trade Policy toward China
This paper will be
the culmination of your work. For this assignment you will write a policy
briefing paper that is based on your research over the past 7 modules: weeks.
The goal is to prepare a final report for a “client” or “principle.”
Your paper must include an introduction with a thesis
that clearly states the main issue and provides any/all background information
needed to explain to the reader the extent of the issue. Your paper will then
consist of the following 3 subsections: you will provide a detailed summary and
analysis of past, current, and future policy addressing the issue. You will
then also provide a conclusion where you will give your recommendation as to
what course of action will best address the issue.
Items to include are outlined as follows:
· Length of
assignment: 10-15 double-spaced pages
following is required but is excluded from this length requirement: abstract,
reference section, and appendices.
· Format of
assignment: Current Turabian Format
· Number of
· Acceptable sources:
scholarly sources, course assigned readings, empirical journals, published
within the last 20 years.
This assignment includes a template to follow. See the
“Briefing Paper: Final Template” This template does not include the
required abstract, references section or appendices needed for this assignment
(as they conform to the Turabian Style as linked in the course) this template
just addresses the specific layout for the body of the paper that the
instructor is looking for.
Note: your paper is not a traditional research paper
but a policy brief which is distinct in several ways. Policy briefs are indented
to be decisive and focused and convey the practical implications of research to
the audience. There are often several headings and they are very pointed. The
purpose of a policy brief is to synthesize research findings information to
help your reader decide what they should do.
As described in the Instructions portion above, your
headings will include the Introduction with your thesis statement and background
information. Your brief will then include 3 subheadings: past policy, current
policy, and future policy. Your brief will conclude with a Conclusion heading
where you deliver your final recommendation to the audience.
Note: Your assignment will be checked for originality
via the Turnitin plagiarism tool.
