Choose a U.S. alliance with a Muslim-majority state in the Middle East, and analyze it from a Christian faith-based perspective. Your analysis should examine each of the following: What is the underlying reason for the U.S. alliance? What, if any, concerns does the allied country raise in terms of human rights, particularly religious freedom and the treatment of religious minorities? (Note: the U.S. government produces international religious freedom reports on every country in the world, as well as broader reports on human rights. Other human rights NGOs such as Freedom House produce similar reports). From a Christian perspective, how should we think about the prudential concerns for the U.S. alliance versus the concerns Christians naturally have for human rights and the treatment of fellow co-religionists? How, if at all, does the relationship between the state you chose and other U.S. allies in the region factor into this calculation? What, if any, recommendations would you make to change the relationship and better balance the imperatives discussed above, in accordance with Christian worldview principles? Possible countries include: Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, UAE, Oman, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Morocco, Tunisia or Turkey.
CASE ANALYSIS A thorough written case analysis should be a 1-3-page paper, and include, but not necessarily limited to the following: 1.An overview or abstract of the case 2.A clear statement of the problem(s) 3.A thorough analysis of the pertinent stakeholder (s) and of the issues and the ways these combine to create the problem (s). 4.One or more suggested solutions, with clear explanations of the strengths and weaknesses of each solution and with each solution supported by one or more of the theories presented in the text. 5.An explanation of how the solutions (s) can be implemented (by whom, etc.) and the problems that might be encountered in implementation.

Papers will be graded on content, logic, organization, analysis, and conclusion.
Content consists of theoretical application and factual knowledge.
Logic consists of the reasoning of the paper are the content items arranged in some understandable order, does one bit of information follow from another, are the items related in some consistent fashion that leads to a justifiable conclusion.
Organization a subset of logic. Are items presented in such a way that they form a coherent and orderly argument. For instance, you may choose a chronological organization (by date).
Analysis Merely reporting information back from the source material is insufficient. the information must be analyzed usually using a theoretical perspective, to be able to draw out the meaning why is it that way or why is that important.
Conclusion if the other components are there, a conclusion is the easiest part of the paper. The conclusion must follow from the data and its analysis. Again, some explanation of the material to present a coherent argument and support a reasoned conclusion.
Papers must be sociological in nature that is they must use the information and theory to draw conclusions about society. Historical and psychological aspects of human behavior may be adjunct to the matter, but the analysis must be sociological.
What are the impacts of globalization on workers with regard to migration and
citizenship specifically? [Note: You can focus on a specific group of workers if
you want.] In what ways does globalization encourage or discourage labour
migration? How does the mobility of labour, of workers, compare to the mobility
of capital, of trans-national corporations? What are the relationships between
labour migration and citizenship? Why has immigration become such a hot-button
issue in the last few years and what kind of politics does this inspire? Why has
nationalism emerged as a significant political issue? What are possible solutions
for the conflicts between globalization, labour migration, and citizenship?
