Question Description

Discussion Module 4

Hugh Evans started a movement that mobilizes “global citizens,” people who self-identify first and foremost not as members of a state, nation or tribe but as members of the human race. In this uplifting and personal talk, learn more about how this new understanding of our place in the world is galvanizing people to take action in the fights against extreme poverty, climate change, gender inequality and more. “These are ultimately global issues,” Evans says, “and they can only be solved by global citizens demanding global solutions from their leaders.” Watch the 16:57 minute video from the TED Talk series (you should take notes) and discuss the following:

“Can these types of ‘bottom up’ movements really change the world, advance global goals, and create a new global citizen. What are some examples from Hughes (other than rock concerts) or your own ideas about what can or should work in the future.”

You must make your first post (minimum 300 words) in order to access other students and then a second & third post in response to another student (minimum 100 words.) The ten points are awarded for the quality and relevance of the first post based upon the question, an engaging response post, and the timeliness and quantity of the posts.

Term paper Module 4

Chapter 11 focuses on the many challenges to cooperation and the ways in which governments, organizations, and individuals can collaborate to overcome them. First, it describes the United Nations’s Millennium Development Goals as a way for understanding issues of inequity. The chapter then describes three particular global issues. The first issue is poverty; defining terms and concepts critical to understanding poverty and discusses the Millennium Challenge Corporation as a mechanism for alleviating poverty in developing countries. The second issue is global health and disease, including HIV/AIDS and malaria in particular, as well as the efforts by the World Health Organization in providing leadership in global health. It then focuses on the third issue of human rights, and universal and relative norms; and uses many examples to illustrate the nuances of determining right and wrong.

Focusing on the UN Millennium Development Goals, describe how the world can overcome the three global issues outlined. Can governments achieve this, or NGO’s, or IGO’s; and what do you believe would be the best mechanisms for correcting these issues in the future?

See the Assignments and deadlines section in the Course information Module for the paper requirements and grading rubric.


Term paper requirements are as follows:

The paper has a minimum length of 700 words with at least two outside sources to supplement the text material.

The paper should have a title at the beginning and a citations section at the end which uses common academic citation style. The paper should not begin with a repetition of the question or have your name, my name, the course name, date, etc., as those do not count toward the word total nor does the citation page. The paper should begin with a title to your work and then the material, which should ideally include an opening statement of your thesis, a structured and organized body of work, and a conclusion. There is a rubric attached to each Term paper assignment that indicates the methodology utilized for the grading score. Wikipedia and various encyclopedias are not considered proper sources. The paper should focus on the analysis of the question but it is also fine to put your own opinion and viewpoints into the paper.
