[SOLVED] Pick a legal or social practice common in a community, society, or country that is accepted as right or appropriate by many of the people there, but is believed by most outsiders to be unacceptably harmful to people, and either mistaken or wrong.
Need help with my Political Science question – Im studying for my class.
- Only *.doc or *docx formats will be accepted
- Use one cover page, with only your title, the prompt you are answering, your name, and student number.
- Only accepted format: Times New Roman, 12 point, 1 inch margins, double-spaced, with page numbers.
- No more than five further pages.
- One additional page for references cited.
- In your writing make it clear when you are relating or borrowing someone elses ideas, and make clear when you are amending someone elses idea or offering one of your own.
- In the text or in references cited use any kind of consistent citation format. Can be simple, e.g., (Hobbes, ch. XIV) or (Lecture, Oct. 6.) — DATES are inside each PDF!
- Pick a legal or social practice common in a community, society, or country that is accepted as right or appropriate by many of the people there, but is believed by most outsiders to be unacceptably harmful to people, and either mistaken or wrong.
- The majority of harmful social practices in the world disadvantage women, so that is one area to look, but any legal or social practice that is arguably harmful will do.
- Design for that group a harmonization of moral, social, and legal norms approach to the problem, using the broad ideas from Bogotá, but not copying mechanically the specific tactics that city applied.
- Also, as an outside adviser, justify to your concerned local clients how your project and program design would deal with the issues of cultural difference, moral universalism, and moral relativism.
- How to Answer the Question:
- ***Your answer should involve ideas from (at least) three readings(LINKS BELOW) and from two different weeks(PDF) of the course***
- Answer the question entirely or mostly with reference to the content of the course readings, lectures, discussions, and your own thinking.
- Dont pad with long quotes. If you need to relate what someone else said, mostly paraphrase and only quote briefly (perhaps the most relevant or striking part of what the author wrote).
- Your creative and original thought is expected and rewarded, at the same time it should be focused on course content rather than other interesting stuff.
- A good essay shows not just an understanding of the readings and how they relate to each other. A good essay also takes a stand on the issues presented, but it does so in such a way that the reader has a sense that the writer grappled with the core themes in question and is neither simply regurgitating what they’ve read nor presenting their own opinions uninformed by the texts.
- Again, show us that you are learning the content of the course AND show us that you are thinking about it
