Final Paper: A Public Policy Story
You are expected to prepare a public policy story. Events that bring about public policy stories may be related to policy decisions and outcomes. A story may be directed towards particular outcomes. A chronology of public policy story or event may include: ideas, traditions, dialogue, encounter, interaction of different opinions and attitudes. When you write your public policy story, endeavor to indicate the importance of the story in the formation of public policies. You may tell a story from your own policy experience or from research sources. However, you must tell the story in your own words. Students are to choose a contemporary public policy of interest, focus on a narrow aspect of the policy, and develop a well-written paper. The paper should discuss recent changes in the policy, identify the arguments and rationale for the changes, and discuss the interests promoting the policy change. Please be thematic with your paper. Make sure to have proper sentence structure as well as providing a clear content (meaning clearly addressing the topic being discussed).
