The course project is designed to allow students to work in teams on given policy issue and, simultaneously, prepare an individual policy analysis report. At the first session, policy issues for students’ project will be introduced and discussed. Students then set up teams and select an issue according to their preferences. Based on the issue statement, each team (2-4 students) will define a joint policy problem which will be presented in class (see the course schedule). Before a team can continue with the project, a problem definition must be approved by the course leader.

Each student is required to write an interim project report and a final project paper. Students will report their progress during the course. In the interim oral presentation, the student should briefly summarize the problem, objectives, policy goals and criteria and possible policy solutions. In the final oral presentation, the student should briefly summarize the problem, objectives, options, and the results of the analysis. The oral presentation is strictly limited to 10 minutes.

Students are also required to elaborate and present two home exercises. Details of individual exercises will be discussed at given sessions. Assignments not completed on time will automatically receive a grade off unless: a) there is sufficient reason for the lateness; b) course leader have been consulted prior to the time that the requirement is due; and c) course leader agree to the lateness, and the time the requirement will be fulfilled. All three conditions must be present.

Students have three due dates for the final project paper. First two terms can be used for obtaining informal feedback. In such a case, indicate in the document title that it is a draft not to be formally evaluated. The fourth term is a strict deadline, and all submitted documents will be checked for plagiarism and graded. All version must be sent to If the final report is not submitted by the third deadline, the student fails to pass the course.
