The Question: What is the authorâ€™s argument, and what is the theory behind it? Drawing on what youâ€™ve learned in the course and on what he discusses, how does he rank the variables that he discusses? Which underlying assumption: the realist focus on power, the constructivist focus on ideas, or liberal emphasis on institutions, forms part of his explanation and makes the greatest sense? Do you agree with his diagnosis of the situation and do his recommendations follow from his analysis? If you agree with his argument, then speculate and anticipate the type of counter-arguments that his critics would make, and explain how they would be wrong. If you disagree with him, explain the weaknesses in his argument and propose a better, alternative strategy and solution. Outline, based on your own analysis, the best policy recommendation for avoiding the outcome the author is outlining.
