For this final assignment, students will choose from a number of case
studies uploaded into the Lesson for Week 7 and write a four to five
page paper relevant to this case study. Options for case studies
include: Lake Victoria Region, Liberia, China, Philippines, Indonesia,
Rwanda, Chiapas, and Gaza. In this paper, students will choose a human
security problem from their selected case study and complete a mapping
(in either outline or diagram form) of a human security problem, to
include economic, political, environmental, and social factors at the
individual, group, national, regional, international, and global levels
(as outlined in the assignment sheet).
This mapping can be made in diagram or outline form and should be no
longer than 2 pages. I have uploaded two diagrams to this assignment
sheet to assist you with this mapping. The remaining 2-3 pages of your
paper should include an introductory paragraph which briefly summarizes
your case study, followed by an analysis relevant to the following
1. How do economic, political, environmental, and social factors contribute to this human security problem?
2. How does this human security problem compound economic, political, environmental, and social issues?
3. What new human security issues have or are likely to result (if any)?
4. Why is it important to take a multi-faceted, multi-level approach to addressing human security problems?
Students are expected to conduct some research in support of their
analysis. Don’t forget to wrap up your conclusions in a closing
paragraph. Papers should be formatted pursuant to Turabian Style and
should be written in Times New Roman or Arial font, with sentencing
doublespaced. Students should include in-text citations and a list of
sources. Please save your work in a Word file, attach to the assignment
sheet, and submit for grading by midnight on Sunday of Week 8.
