I’m working on a political science writing question and need a sample draft to help me learn.
Pick an approach to addressing poverty, inequality, or development (e.g., Land titling, UBI, Microlending, SDG, Co-op, Global Wealth Tax, or some other approach). In 4-5 pages,
you should (1) Describe the approach (2) Explain what it is meant to achieve and how (3) Explain when was it first implemented and/or where has it been implemented since? (4) What relevant group(s) or organization(s) guide its implementation and oversight? (5) What metrics in general, if any, does it set for determining whether implementation is successful? (6) What barriers – political, economic, strategic – if any, have gotten in the way of implementation? (6) Has this approach been successful, unsuccessful, mixed, problematic, or too early to tell? Explain. (7) Are there any recommended remedies or reforms that have been proposed to improve the approach you chose, or do you have any suggestions? Explain.
You must include reference to at least 3 sources (they can be material we read during the course or other material you have encountered or sought out). You must cite quotes or paraphrases using either parenthetical or footnote citations. I do not have a preference on citation style (e.g., APA, Chicago, MLA, etc.) but you should pick one and apply it consistently. In addition to in-text parenthetical citations (Bar, 2021: 3) or footnote citations,
you must include a bibliography that provides the name of the author, title of the work, name of publication, year of publication, and a url (or whatever of that information is available/relevant). A list of URLs is not satisfactory for a bibliography and will be subject to point deduction.
