Write a paper on the politics of international trade in the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) system, following the instructions for each part. Extensively use class readings. Use the provided template double space, standard (1 to 1.25 inch) margins and 12-point Times or Times New Roman font.
1,250 words minimum, excluding instructions and bibliography.
Use the subheadings in the template but do not include the instructions.
You need to specify information sources, including page numbers, based on the APA (American Psychological Association) format. See Purdue Online Writing Lab for APA and other styles (https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/).
Try not to directly copy phrases and sentences from the reading. If you do, use quotation marks, “ ”, and identify the source.
As long as you use assigned readings, you don’t need to include a bibliography. When you use a part of a reading, just identify the author and page number, e.g., (Mearsheimer, pp. 50-58). You could use outside sources (but not Wikipedia!), but if you do, you need to include a bibliography to list the outside sources.
Do not read or use your fellow student’s paper, or papers from this class in the past.
Write a paragraph or two to explain what you will do in this paper. Include something relevant to the topic that attracts readers’ attention. Also, briefly how this paper progresses.
