PLEASE USE ONLY SCHOLARLY/ACADEMIC SOURCES. The minimum number of references is six including two books and four academic journal articles.When thinking about the research question and argument try not to be desсrіptive. So instead of just asking “what were the policies used by X to support Y” think more “how effective were the policies used by X in achieving Y” or “in what ways do policies by X impact Y…” so questions that will require you to explain and assess not just describe or list or define things.. Feel free to additionally refer to other sources of relevant information including mass media, policy papers, etc. It is very important to delineate your thesis and hypothesis in the introduction and use supportive arguments – logical and factual to support your thoughts and to prove your key thesis. Generalizations should be specific. Statistical data should be up-to-date and borrowed – with imperative indication of sources – from official statistical documents. Your paper should contain 8 -10 (not less than 8 and not more than 10) typewritten double-spaced pages of text excluding cover page, contents page, and bibliography. Cover page and contents page should not be numbered. Use font 12 of Times New Roman, and 0.98” maximum superior/inferior margins and 1.18” left/right margins. All sources should be properly referred to, and the paper should contain footnotes. Use Chicago Manual of Style. An essay should contain a cover page, contents page, one-page introduction, 2-3 titled sections, one-page conclusion, and a list of used literature. All elements of the paper should be strongly related. between each other and connected to an essay’s topic. Essays are assessed on the basis of a holistic approach.

THE COUNTRY-selected pakistan • This will serve as your case study • Think about the economic and political system it adopts Select a topic-Selected Gender eqaulity as topic • Could be a recent crisis, issue, ongoing problem, success story, initiative Government, business, society relation and interaction • What are some tensions? • Power dynamics • What is interesting you or making you curious about this issue?Remember, this is a research paper not an opinion piece, so whatever argument you are making there needs to be data/sources to support it, not your own judgement. Yes it is ok to bring in your own perspective, but you need to use resources to back it up. If you feel stuck, try to limit your research to either a region, or a timeframe, or specific policy. And remember to always link the issue to business, government, and society. I also encourage you to be critical in your analysis and writing!
