You will be expected to write a research paper investigating some aspect of economic, political, or social relations in a state of the Asia Pacific. 


If you would like a base score of 90, you should write a paper between 10-11 pages in length.


Points will be deducted for poor writing, bad organization, weak substance, illogical argumentation or other errors that reduce the quality of your work. Similarly, points can be added for skillful writing, clear organization, strong substance, solid logical argumentation, and other quality enhancing elements.

Please use Arial 12 point font for your paper. You may use APA, MLA, or Chicago Manual style.

The more quality resources you use, the better your paper will be. Including books by scholars that are at the cutting edge of research in your field of investigation is important to your success. For example, if you were doing research in Orientalism, it might be important to include Edward Said in your bibliography.


I will evaluate you using the following criteria:


1. Is your writing clear, concise, comprehensive, engaging, and grammatically correct?

2. Does your research rely on a sufficient depth and breadth of quality resources?

3. Is your thesis falsifiable and do you muster sufficient evidence and logic to justify your conclusions?

Some topic areas you might consider include:

1. What role does ethnicity play in the politics of a given Asian Pacific country?

2. How does film, fiction, or art represent economic, political, or social trends in a given Asian Pacific country?

3. How do debates about the teaching of history reflect current economic, political, and or social trends?

4. What has been the path of democratization or economic development in a given Asian Pacific country?

5. How does ideology impact the economy, politics and society of a given Asian Pacific country?

6. How does corruption influence the economy, politics, and society of a given Asian Pacific country?

7. What role do global justice concerns play in the economy, politics and society of a given Asian Pacific country?

8. What role do environmental concerns play in the economy, politics and society of a given Asian Pacific country?

9. How do geopolitical concerns impact the politics of the various states in the region?


Plagiarism will result in no credit for the plagiarized assignment.

SAMPLE THESIS

 

You should select a thesis and build an outline about how you are going to approach researching that thesis.  Here is an example of what I would do:

My thesis is Asian direct foreign investment in East Africa is detrimental to the economic development of that region.

I will try to prove this thesis by examining three case studies including Sudan, South Sudan, and Ethiopia.

My dependent variable is economic growth, my independent variables are direct foreign investment, ethnic relations, sectoral growth, inflation, arms sales, and human rights abuses.  I will examine the independent variables in each of the three case studies and try to build a relationship between these variables and economic growth over the last 10-20 years.

This is one example of what you could construct, but feel free to be creative.

My outline would look something like this:

I. Introduction - Asian direct foreign investment in East Africa is detrimental to the economic development of the region

II. Explanation of model

a. Measuring Growth

b. Measuring Direct Foreign Investment

c. Measuring Inflation

d. Measuring Arms Sales

e. Measuring human rights abuses

f. Measuring ethnic conflict

III. Sudan Case Study

a. Growth

b Direct Foreign Investment

c. Inflation

d. Arms Sales

e. ethnic conflict

f. human rights abuses

IV. South Sudan

a. Growth

b Direct Foreign Investment

c. Inflation

d. Arms Sales

e. ethnic conflict

f. human rights abuses

IV. Ethiopia

a. Growth

b Direct Foreign Investment

c. Inflation

d. Arms Sales

e. ethnic conflict

f. human rights abuses

V. Conclusion - What was discovered and the implications of those discoveries for further investigating the impact of Asian direct foreign investment in East Africa.

SAMPLE BIBLIOGRAPHY


It would be great if you could begin reading some of the works you select and get a sense of what scholars have said about your topic up to this time. The more sources you have and the better quality those sources are, the better quality research paper you are likely to write. Here is a sample bibliography from a paper I wrote for a class here at SDSU.
