What explains the global political events we observe? This class’ focus is on understanding the scientific study of international relations. Each section of the course is devoted to explaining different kinds of international political phenomena from different theoretical perspectives. In this assignment, students are tasked with critically evaluating one research article on a topic from the course that they find interesting. In so doing, they will need to briefly summarize the journal article (roughly 1-2 paragraphs), focusing in particular on the research question, theory and argument, and empirical findings (where relevant). The bulk of the paper
<

should focus on a) linking the article to topics/issues we have covered in the course, b) applying the findings to a current event, and c) discussing new directions subsequent research could take that would build on/extend the findings in your article. Keep these requirements in mind as you choose your article.

<
Papers will be graded according to how well they meet the above criteria, and also by the quality of writing. By quality of writing, I especially mean clarity (spelling and grammar) and organization of thought. As the assignment asks you to effectively summarize and integrate theories and current events, longer quotes consisting of more than 1 sentence will be penalized. Quotes should be used rarely anyway.
