There are 5 forum discussion questions that need answers with references.

I’m only accepting cheeper bids. nothing more than $10 but il tip more.

Question 1:

Click here to read “Think globally, act locally” then answer the following question.

1. Consider a community that you are familiar with, whether you are living in the place where you grew up or in a different community at the present time. What issues do you see around you that could be alleviated by the idea to “think globally, act locally”?  Keep in mind that we are focusing on the power of the individual citizen, as opposed to government solutions, etc.

What is the local issue and how does it relate to global issues? On a global level, explain what actors create/perpetuate the issue, if applicable, or conversely what actors work to address the issue and how?

(Be sure to think about what could be done by who on the local level to prepare for the final assignment in this class.)

2.  Please be sure to cite your sources in Turabian format.

MNCs and globalization go hand-in-hand.  After reading this week’s lesson, find an MNC and describe ways it has been a good citizen or a bad citizen.  Don’t use Nestle since it is described in the lesson.

Question 4:

This week we’re focusing on states and the concepts of sovereignty, power and governance. There are vast differences between strong states like the US and weak states like the Congo. After reviewing CFR’s Crisis Guide on Eastern Congo explain why it is considered a weak state. Please be sure to support your thoughts with references to the course materials and please be sure to use Turabian style citations. Make sure to define your terms.

Question 5:

As explained in the lesson notes, IGOs are supranational organizations that are heavily connected to regional or international security and international law. A prime example is the UN. Today, the UN is involved in a number of peacekeeping missions around the world. Each time the UN intervenes it sets precedent, which could evolve into customary law.

For this forum, please visit the UN peacekeeping homepage and choose one current or past mission to focus on. For that mission, explain the circumstances that created the need to intervene (background), the purpose of the mission (mandate) and any interesting facts and figures about it. Be sure to use more than one source and incorporate references to course material.  Please be sure to paraphrase and cite the information rather than quoting it. I recommend thinking of it as telling the story behind the mission much like the producers did in the movie Black Hawk Down. What happened and what did the UN do about it? Is there something unique about the mission that is setting precedent or impacting international law?

When possible, avoid showcasing the same mission as another student.
