The paper assignment is to write an essay examining the Philippines as an actor in world politics.
Papers should include the following:
An assessment of national power based on the list of elements of power (discussed in class) as applied to the specific case of the country. Many useful sources are on the moodle site, including the CIA study of each country (CIA Factbook) as well as links to numerous websites with military, economic and social data for each country. What are the strengths the country enjoys? The weaknesses?
A discussion of the specific interests of the country, and the foreign policies it has adopted (or should adopt) to advance those interests in the 21st century. What are the threats and opportunities the country has? Some additional sources on each country’s foreign policy will be added to the moodle site, but you are welcome to go beyond these sources and find additional sources on your own. If you have questions about the quality or reliability of these sources, you can check with the professor or the TA.
Papers should run about 5-6 pages, double spaced, Times New Roman 12-pt. type, with 6 inches of writing surface per page on A4 paper! Citation style may be whatever one you are most familiar with: MLA, Chicago, APA, etc. However, you must use one consistently. You must cite sources for ideas you get from them as well as for passages you quote directly (in quotation marks) or paraphrase.
