This assignment is the writing component of your presentation. It is not supposed to be a direct transcription of your presentation, but at least some overlap is expected.

Your Country Overview

Basics

  • This assignment is the writing component of your presentation. It is not supposed to be a direct transcription of your presentation, but at least some overlap is expected.
  • The objective is to offer a coherent overview of the country, and its political realities.
  • Keep the contents simple. Make the document as straight-forward as possible, as if you are explaining things to someone who does not know anything about the country.
  • Do not just throw information at the reader. Include only key details.
  • When in doubt, it may be good to ask yourself: “If I wished to learn about this country, and picked up this overview, would I really find that particular information helpful? What information would be more crucial, and how can I best present it?” Example: Do not only include the vote shares of each political party in the last election, Add some crucial details. Writing/presenting on Mexico? Do not forget to mention that PRI was in power for 71 years, from 1929 to 2000!
