Congratulations! You have been appointed by the President as the new United States Ambassador to the United Nations. As part of your duties, you have been asked to write a policy brief that relative merits of two countries that have been nominated to fill a seat on the United Nations Human Rights Council and specifying which of the two you believe is the best choice for the position. Although this paper may differ a bit from a policy brief that you might write if you were a researcher or lobbyist, the assignment will give you important background on how to research and write this format, which is commonly used in government-related positions. You will also be presenting your views in a multimedia format, something that is increasingly expected by employers.
Please note: Select your two countries by the end of Week 2 and report them to your instructor.
Choose one of the five regions listed at the United Nations statistical website.â€¯ Once you’ve selected your region, choose two countries other than the United States.â€¯Some regions will have more than two candidates and some regions have more seats than nominees.â€¯ For the purposes of this assignment, however, you are to assume that the two nations you select are competing for a single opening in their region.â€¯â€¯
