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. Please ensure your mapping identifies factors/conditions unique to each level of analysis (in other words, don’t simply repeat the same condition across several levels of analysis). 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 questions: 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 Chicago Style. Please include section headings so you and I can both easily see where you answered each question posed by the assignment. Students should include in-text citations and a list of sources.

You should also put your name on the file, then upload it here in Assignments no later than 11:55pm ET on Sunday, Week Four. Important: Number the questions on your paper and write a topic/thesis sentence that indicates the question you are answering. You do not need to rewrite the question as long as the numbers correspond. Papers presented with no indication of the questions’ being answered will be returned.
