Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
Critically analyse your policy issue through the lens of agenda setting.
The essay should use conceptual models, theories and frameworks introduced during the module. You can use a range of resources, including academic papers, policy statements and documents, grey literature and news media sources. Your essay should be fully referenced.
An effective analysis should include:
an explanation and justification for choosing your conceptual approach. This includes why your chosen approach is appropriate for analysing the policy you have decided to focus on
in-depth research on the case study, including identification of actors involved, and appropriate mapping of the conceptual approach onto your chosen policy case
a clear argument which is fully supported by evidence and logically structured.
Reference should be in Harvard style. I will provide examples and some links for information here.
