Oes aid work? If so, where and how? If not why? Provide a solid and coherent evidence base to back up your assertion.

Students must choose and respond to one of the following essay questions. Once again, essays must not exceed 2,000 words so students are advised to structure their argument carefully. Again, empirical evidence and references to literature on the topic is important, indeed necessary, but students are advised to make sure to voice their own argument, rather than simply reiterating the arguments of others. In most cases, there are several components to each of these questions, and students are required to respond to the question in its entirety, not just part. Take care to answer the entire question, something to consider when outlining/structuring the essay.
References do not count in word count.
