Term Project

Your term project is an integrative summary of seven short papers each of which must be at least three pages long.  These papers may be from the academic literature or current news on drug controls, the drug war, history of illicit or psychoactive drugs or drug policies from anywhere in the world. You may select articles from journal articles or working papers on Drug Policies, Economic Analysis, Economic Historical Analysis, Medical History, Scientific Analysis, International Diplomacy, and Social and Philosophical Analysis.   Finally, the documents you cite must include research papers, magazine articles, newspaper article or government policy documents published during the last 10 years. Your bibliography topic must be narrow and specific.  You cannot select papers that address the War on Drugs in general. An example of an acceptable topic could be “The Medellin Cartel: It’s Rise and Fall” or Comparing the Methods of Pablo Escobar and Other Drug Gangs or How the Dutch Profited from the Trade in Opium and Why and When they Ceased to Trade in Opium   The bibliographical selection may address topics from the examples listed below or other topics that you may select: Comparative international policies Historical analysis of policies in different countries Socio-Economic analysis of drug policies Social and Psychological Issues of Drug Use and Policies The Politics and Economics the War on Drugs International Drug Cartels and their Activities / Violence and Corruption European colonialism and the drug trade in history Foreign Trade and the History of Drugs (Opium and Cocaine) As stated clearly, the Term Project must be an annotated bibliography.  In annotated bibliography, you identify several documents to review, which may include books, monographs, articles and even news publications. You then summarize each article below a bibliographical citation of the article or document.  After all the summaries of each article or document individually, you write an integrative summary of all the bibliographical references. This Integrative Summary must precede all the individual summaries.   Please see attached document for an illustration.  All projects must follow this format or you will be penalized.  If you have already submitted your project in a different format, you may request that the instructor clear your submission to permit you to resubmit.
