Oreign Policies in the Middle East (Please include something about religion in there and how that affects certain policies)

1. An analytical research paper (6-8 pages) on a topic of your choice which will revolve around
theories developed during class (ideas,institutions, interests), makes a clear argument about why a policy outcome happened,
raises and dismisses potential alternative explanations for that same outcome, and which
references at least seven peer-reviewed articles or books.

Note: My professor is really emphasizing on a strong thesis statement, and good structuring for the paper since this is policy class. He says this paper should answer the question Why”. Please call me or email me if you need to talk to me. Also after explaining the why, maybe predict a future policy possibly that could be made down the road or just provide an implication from using our logic on why the other policies were created.
