Analysis of a current issue in the politics of developing countries


You are open as to which issue you choose to present on but the issue must be directly related to development. In addition to presenting on a topic of your choice, you will analyze the issue from one of the theoretical perspectives covered in the course.

Specifically, your essay must include the following components:

– The use of at least 3 outside sources (other than the texts used in the course)

– Analysis of the issue from a modernization, dependency,  neoliberal/globalization school of thought, sustainable development or post-modern/post-colonial theory

– Include at least one visual component in your paper – you may reference a map, chart, grid or picture (be sure to cite your source.)
