 Topic question: Some scholars claim that globalization and economic integration are positive forces for development and political and economic change. Others argue that these forces exacerbate inequalities and unleash violence and instability. Where do you stand in the debate about the pros and cons of globalization for developing countries and what advice might you offer to governments of those countries as they navigate the challenges at hand? Essay outline: 1. Introduction (~400 words): In 2-3 paragraphs, lay out the topic of the essay, a thesis statement (1-2 sentences that clearly spell out your main argument), and a road map of what follows. 2. Body of the essay (~1000 words): Explain and substantiate your argument. Make sure you support it theoretically, by building on the course readings, and empirically, by presenting relevant case studies and tying them effectively to your thesis. A strong essay would typically cite 10-12 of the course readings and offer 2-3 empirical examples. Please use real world examples for empirical examples to support the topic. 3. Critique (~250 words): Try to predict 1-2 alternative explanations, or weaknesses in your argument, that those who disagree with you might point to. 4. Counter-critique (~250 words): How would you defend your argument? Respond to these critiques. 5. Conclusion (~200 words): Briefly conclude the argument you made and the evidence you based it on. What might be the implications if this argument is taken up and further developed in other contexts? 6. Bibliography
