The Policy Brief Assignments in your syllabus are described as follows in your syllabus:
1 Policy Brief (18 points total): After covering enough ground on U.S. and California institutions and policy-making processes in comparison with other governments in the world, you will write a 2000 word policy brief. This policy piece will be addressed to local, state, or federal level of the U.S. government. Alternatively, it could be written to be submitted to an inter-governmental organization (IGO) or national/transnational non-governmental organization (NGO). For the policy brief you will pick a policy area on local, state, federal, or international level, e.g., immigration, healthcare, education, foreign policy, or environment, in order to outline and propose a certain policy. More information on this assignment will be provided through the paper guidelines sheet and you can get a better idea of those by looking at the sample policy briefs submitted by your friends during earlier semesters.
