Project #122507 - marijuana

introduction of topic:; background of topic;paradoxes of topic;affirmative and opposing position. who are the stakeholders; what are some of your opinion and proposals ; conclusion.

 

The course project will be comprised of both a written paper and oral presentation applying the policy paradox model to a public policy issue. This can be a public policy that affects you and or your organization or a general topical public policy issue. However, be sure the issue has a degree of public debate and decision making to it. For example there may not be much public debate regarding the building of a small private shopping center (other than do we need another Circle K). There may be a great deal of public debate around the decision to build a large affordable housing complex in a community. How many units, how dense, how low will they be priced, where it is located, why do we have to build low cost housing to begin with and etc. may make the decision a major issue to the public and therefore to the policy makers. 

 

The written project should apply the Policy Paradox concepts and decision model much as possible. The expected length of the paper is 20-25 typewritten pages. All topics must be approved in advance! During one of the last two sessions of the semester, each student will make a presentation of his or her project to the class. Requirements for the oral presentation are discussed below. There will be no duplication of topics.

Whenever possible provide information on counter-arguments to at least demonstrate that you were considered them.
