PAPER TOPIC I

When and Under What Circumstances
Is Intervention in the "Internal Affairs"
of a State in Systematic Violation
of Human Rights Justified?

Drawing on the reading and your own considered opinion and good judgment, answer the question(s) on the following pages. In arguing for your position, think of the arguments that might be made against it, and respond to them. In defending your position, offer what you believe are the most principled arguments you can make.

In thinking of objections to your argument, think of the best possible objections that someone on the other side might be able to come up with, i. e., give yourself a hard time. If you can respond to the other side at its strongest rather than at its weakest point, that can only help to strengthen your own opinion and make it that much more persuasive.

Papers should be five to six (5-6) pages in length or longer, if you wish, and double-spaced.

Please number pages.

We would like to have two copies, marked COPY ONE and COPY TWO.

And papers should be stapled, not held together by
Paper CLIP, Elmer's GLUE, Dentyne GUM,
SPIT, James BOND or Origami FOLD.

The paper is due, in class, on Tuesday, March 16th, 2010.
