Introduction. (100-200 words) State, in summary form, what you are about to say
Background. (300-500 words) This is where the reader is familiarized with your global issues and country by extensive explanations and illustrations. Write at least one paragraph on each issue and one paragraph on the selected country (minimum three paragraphs). Consider the reader to be unfamiliar with the issues and country. Describe the country in terms of not only geography and politics, but also culture, ethnicity, and religion. Describe the issue-category sets in terms of characteristics or factors and include dimensional portrayals
Data. (300-500 words) This is where the reader is introduced to the specific data analyzed to evaluate, compare and contrast, as well as assess impact and develop recommendations. Provide factual data describing the characteristics or factors and dimensions separately for the country.
Analysis. (300-500 words) Report on the results of analyzing the nexus of the two issue-category sets in the country selected. Compare and contrast the correlation/relationship of these sets in the country. Is there a relationship/correlation? For example, describe how they relate, or the evidence that indicates there is no connection, or that the connection is weak.
Impact, media and recommended solutions or responses. (500-600 words) Describe the impact of the found relationships, or lack thereof, in the country, as well as any globalized impact (e.g., U.S. housing bust and world recession). Include here explanations, illustrations and an evaluation of media nationally (e.g., newspaper in the country) and internationally (e.g., BBC web article). Evaluate the media portrayal of issue-category sets using the results of the analysis (200-250 words). Utilizing perceptive awareness of the mutual impact of issues-subcategory sets and the country (i.e., culture, ethnicity, and religion), recommend solutions/responses that reflect this mutual impact.
 As such, media as a data source must be explicitly disclosed and if used done so with care to separate normative portrayals in the media (i.e. opinions) from the actual extraction of facts (e.g. data in media reports drawing on a credible DISCLOSED source that is not readily accessible).
