This paper allows you to evaluate a public policy theory or model in comparative perspective. The first step of this assignment is to choose a theory, model, or hypothesis discussed in the class or related readings. Second, consider ways that this model might be tested or modified using real- world, comparative disaster policy and response cases. You may choose to focus on the policy behavior of a single government, a series of decisions made by the same government leaders, similar decisions taken by different leaders, comparisons between two governments, or differential country cooperation with international organizations. You are required to address at least one non- United States case study in your work, and you might consider foreign country cases where you are proficient in their language.
The paper itself should have a clear thesis or research question, and should address the following themes: First, survey the theoretical or literature foundations of this effort (setting up an detailed foundation, perhaps 3 pages)? Next, prepare the framework and analyze case studies or data to tell us about the utility of the theoretical foundation in the subfield (4-6 pages). Then, reflect on how well the theoretical frame worked to account for policy decisions in this context. Finally, what improvements or modifications should be made to the theory? (2-3 pages). Students are encouraged to discuss their ideas for this assignment with the instructor. The paper should be 12- 14 pages, typed, double-spaced and should apply consistent source citations methods. This assignment is worth 20% of your class grade; more information will be presented in class.
