Policy Paper

Policy Paper


Each  policy  position  should  be  approximately  a  single  page  in  length

(single‐spaced  for  a  total  of  two  pages  for  both  simulation  issues),  and

must  include  a  brief  historical  discussion  of  that  state’s  policies  in

that  issue  area,  followed  by  a  succinct  bullet  form  encapsulation  of  its

policies  (what  it  would  do  if  confronted  with  that  issue  again),  and  a

brief  bibliography  to  indicate  the  source  of  the  material.  The

bibliography  must  include  at  least  one  recent  Internet  source  and  at

least  one  relevant  library  source.  Students  are  not  to  fabricate  policies

and  must  provide  citations  for  all  the  state’s  listed  policies.  Internet

links  related  to  the  state’s  foreign  policy  are  welcome  in  the


The  policy  paper  is  worth  10%  of  the  total  grade  in  this  course.

Students  are  assigned  a  country  based  on  their  choices  and  the  grades

received  up  to  that  point  in  the  course  (participation  grades  determine

rank  and  mid‐term  grades  are  tie‐breakers).  The  website  will  post  an

updated  tallied  list  of  states  that  have  already  been  taken  on  a  weekly

basis.  Do  not  begin  writing  the  policy  paper  until  you  have  received

confirmation  that  your  chosen  state  is  not  taken  by  another  student.

Policy Paper Topics

Policy Paper:

What is the given state’s policy on multilateral international pollution control,

specifically in the area of sea pollution and radioactive materials? What

traditional strategies would the state adopt in the event of a crisis? What is the

state’s domestic population’s likely reaction to a pollution disaster? How

dependent is the state on nearby fishing stocks and other economic uses of the

oceans more generally? How dependent is the state on nuclear generators for its

supply of energy?

Policy Paper #2:

What is the given state’s policy on ensuring the continued supply of oil to the

world? How far is it likely to go to ensure this access and what multilateral

approaches would it undertake to supplement other approaches to such a blockage?

Where does the state traditionally obtain its oil supplies, what short-term

alternatives exist, and how self-sufficient is the state? Is the state likely to

gain or lose in the event of a sudden shortage in the supply of oil, and is it a

member of OPEC?
