Analytical Essay – due 10 JULY

The Analytical Essay for this class is intended to relate to the Country Selection you choose to research and write about for your research paper. As such, you can compare different governments to the country’s regime on which you choose to write your research paper. However, the essay assignment is broader. You may view the essay assignment as an opportunity to jumpstart the paper and review literature related to their country selection and democratization.

The analytical essay should be 4 pages, double-spaced, in a 12-point font. Use APA format. There is no requirement regarding the number of sources you use for the essay. Just cite the sources that support your essay, which can be focused exclusively or largely on the College Board Briefing Paper if you wish.
