Proposal

For the term paper

The term paper proposal is due on January 29.
 
Failure to turn in your proposal at the beginning of class will result in a penalty of 1 point (out of 5). Failure to turn in your proposal immediately once the class has ended will result in a grade of 0.

Submit only one proposal if you are working in teams of 2 or 3 individuals.

No cover page (but name(s) and student number(s), course number and title)
1-2 page(s) (ideally 1 page or 1 sheet of paper printed on both sides)
Tentative title (be more explicit rather than less)
1-2 paragraph(s) (single spaced) on why you chose the topic
5 academic references (including name of the author, title, journal, journal issue, year of publication, pages). You can use some of the suggested readings listed on the GGR 365 Webpage as primary references. Reports from governmental agencies and think tanks are also acceptable, but you must provide me with the link to the relevant webpage.

The GGR 489 Webpage was designed to help you find valuable and credible material on almost any topic related to this course. Please make an effort to look it up, beginning with the suggested readings. You are expected to be familiar with the suggested readings that are directly relevant to your term paper. The point of this is to make sure that you get the basic facts right and are not just parroting some wild and untenable claim from an amateur Website.
