Use the annotated bibiograpy as a guideline for the paper.
The research paper should be eight to ten (8-10) typewritten pages in length (double-spaced) and must be based, in part, on primary sources [defined here as documents, speeches, articles, analyses written by analysts or political figures from the region], not merely on secondary analyses.
With this research paper I really want to get to know if the USA can get to bond good/positive diplomatic, economic, and trading relations with the South and North Korea given to the fact that they are in a really strategic geographic point (useful for trading) , that one Korea is a dictatorship and did not followed the steps of its neighbor state, or that if the two Korea will unite just to work to avoid the USA hegemony together and arise as a single independent Korean peninsula; or maybe the opposite (USA will just intervene as they did in Panama many years ago). Thats why I’m gathering all that in the word “peace” in my paper.
The paper should deal with some aspect of Diplomatic Studies. For example, the student may decide to compare and evaluate the various theories of and approaches to the study of Diplomacy, or to use a research question to illustrate the theoretically-based arguments developed in the literature. Regardless of the topic selected, the student should deal with it analytically, not merely descriptively. This means that the paper should address a specific question and develop and support an argument. It should draw upon the relevant theoretical literature.
Papers must be submitted in standard research paper format–i.e. title page, notes either at the bottom of the page or at the end of the paper, and a bibliography. Use the format given below for both notes and bibliography. It is assumed that due attention will be given to such concerns as spelling, grammar, appropriate word selection and neatness! Although primary consideration in evaluating the paper will be placed on content, logic of the argumentation, and evidence, stylistic concerns (i.e. spelling, grammar, syntax, etc.) will also be taken into account.
Most importantly, papers are not to be mere chronicles of historical developments. Rather, they are to present and support an argument or explanation concerning the problem that has been selected as the focus of research.
