Global Institutions

Environment & the Challenges of Global GovernanceConsidering the readings, video presentations, and your own research, draft a quality 6–7 pg. research paper on a particular global environmental challenge with at least region-wide if not wider significance. Discuss your selection in accordance with the following prompts, answering in a separate or integrated manner as you wish:· Reasoning with clear ideas and examples and using chapter 11????12 challenges as a backdrop, what is the nature and scope of the environmental problem you selected? What caused the problem and what justifies it as a global rather than local concern? If the problem seems more local or even regional than global, what aspects of the problem make its urgency appealing to global institutions, states, or individuals that effectively run these institutions?· Reasoning with clear ideas and examples, explain why the issue is difficult to resolve with collective action of any kind—local, regional, global. Who or what are the main obstacles to mitigating, ameliorating, or even solving the problem you identify?· Many Christians on a spectrum from left to right consider themselves ‘environmentalists’ at some level, from supporting nature preserves, national parks, and clean air and water to global agendas like climate change, pollution reduction, and population control.

State Governments

Enforcement of drug laws is one of the many areas that both the federal government and state governments share. However, for over a decade, states have been legalizing either medicinal marijuana, or recreational marijuana, or both. With states moving towards increased legalization, but the federal government either unwilling or unable to change its own laws around drugs, some have argued that the federal government should leave overall enforcement to the states. Others have argued that the federal government needs to set a single standard for drug enforcement that all citizens should respect. Which do you agree with?Students must read the six articles in the above link from the NY Times and vote on whether or not they agree, disagree, or are undecided.

The United Nations Systems

Essay: The United Nations SystemsInstructionsPrint Start WritingThe United Nations Security Council is the world’s primary body for maintaining international peace and security through a multilateral institution. It is the only organization within the United Nations system that has the authority to make binding decisions and to enforce those decisions through the use of force. Yet the Security Council has long been criticized for its ineffectiveness and outdated membership structure.Recall that the structure of the United Nations Security Council reflects the distribution of political power at the end of World War II. The Security Council has five permanent members (China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States) and ten non-permanent members elected by the General Assembly on a geographic basis for a two year term. Security Council resolutions must be approved by 9 of the 15 members, and a no vote by any of the permanent members automatically defeats any resolution (the veto power).Suppose you were asked to recommend changes in the structure of the Security Council—particularly with respect to its membership composition and voting structure—intended to make the organization more effective. What changes would you propose? What obstacles to your proposed reform might you anticipate?( 500 – 700 wors)
