For the course project, you will conduct research on a comparative politics project that will require you to write a 5-page research paper in which you analyze and discuss the impact of a major political, economic, and/or social issue in Mexico, France, China, or Iran, or the United States. In your research paper, you will also provide a recommendation to resolve the major political, economic, and/or social issue that you are addressing. Select only one foreign nation as your focus.

Your task for this week is to think of some research topic options that you find interesting and browse through some research materials in the Rasmussen library. You are welcome to use outside resources, but please be sure that those resources are scholarly and credible materials.
