[ORDER SOLUTION] Variation in the Level of Democracy between Canada and Mexico
Research paper on my research question: What are the factors responsible for the variation in the level of democracy between Canada and Mexico? I need first an Intro explaining the levels of Democracy in Canada and Mexico. Secondly, I need Literature Review– general literature on the importance of Democracy. Third, Democracy in Canada and Mexico. Historical overviews, etc. Fourth, I need an Analysis to summarize evidences. Fifth, I need conclusions and lastly, I need a works cited page or bibliography. I have a four page instruction sheet on how it is to be written. I want it to be double spaced – 12 point – Times New Roman font with APA citations. This paper does not have a mandatory length although I am thinking it should be approx. 12 pages in addition to the bibliography. This paper is for a capstone class for graduation and is extremely important that it is done well. I need the best help. My Hypothesis is: I hypothesize that Economic Development, Political Leadership, and Political Culture are responsible for the variation in the level of democracy between Canada and Mexico. FOLLOW THIS EXAMPLE, BUT ABOUT CANADA & MEXICO: Dynamics of Democratization (PSCI 4328) Fall 2020 Paper Guideline Sample Title: Explaining the Levels of Democracy in Kenya and South Korea I. Introduction . Introduce your research question . Ex: In this research I ask the question, what are the factors that are responsible for the variation in the level of democracy in Kenya and South Korea? . Introduce your hypothesis . Ex: I hypothesize that colonial legacy, economic development, and political leadership are the key factors that influence the level of democracy in Kenya and South Korea . Provide a brief overview of your finding/conclusion . Ex: My research will show that South Korea has a higher level of democracy. II. Literature Review A. General Literature on the Importance of Democracy . Start by providing various definitions of democracy. . Ex: Freedom House; Dahl; Joseph Schumpeter; Polity V . Discuss some patterns of democratization over the years and across time. . Ex: Huntingtons waves and reverses . Discuss why democracy has become increasingly desired since the end of the Cold War and why the third wave of democratization might be here to stay for some time (citation; ex: Huntington). . Ex: How democracy has become the only best alternative political system since the fall of Communism because it allows presence of equality before the law, rule of law, individual freedom, religious freedom and its compatibility with the market economic system (ex: property rights; fighting corruption) [cite sources]. . State which definition of democracy that you will be using in the paper and why. B. General Literature Connecting the Independent Variables [Colonial legacy, economic development, and political leadership] with the Dependent Variable [democracy] Example: a. Whether or not former colonial powers had prepared indigenous leaders/people for democracy right before independence (citations; ex: Bollen). b. Economic development is believed to foster the creation of a large middle class that is essential for democracy (citations; ex: Lipset). c. Democratically predisposed political leadership tends to make political reforms that are favorable for democratization (citations; ex: Huntington; Dahl). ** Note: All the sources in Part II have to come from books and/or journal articles. III. Democracy in Kenya and South Korea A. Democracy in Kenya 1. A brief historical (or general) overview of the democratization process in Kenya or lack thereof. 2. Causes of Democracy in Kenya: the historical (scholarly work) and empirical evidence a. What scholars say about whether or not the British prepared Kenyans for democracy before independence. b. What scholars say about whether or not Kenyan leaders have embarked political reforms that are favorable for democratization c. What scholars say about the connection between economic development and democracy in Kenya. d. Empirical evidence: provide World Bank data on economic development since 1970 (or since year of independence if it came after 1970). . Provide democracy scores from the Polity V index (systemicpeace.org) for those years. . Draw trend lines for the GDP/C and Polity V data . Do correlation analysis and see if there is a statistically significant relationship between the two variables. Attach your dataset at the end of paper but that will not count towards the paper-length requirement of 10-12 pages 3. Tying the evidence/data [your findings so to speak]: Is it colonial legacy, economic development, or political leadership or two or more of these factors that has/have promoted or impeded democracy in Kenya? ** Note: Some or most sources in this section [Part III] can come from country reports, etc., if you cannot find scholarly work. B. Democracy in South Korea * Repeat what you have done for Kenya in section A above IV. Analysis . Highlight or briefly summarize the main evidences that you have provided in Part III, parts A and B, to compare and contrast the level of democracy between Kenya and South Korea. . Choose a winner V. Conclusions . Restate your research question and hypotheses . In this study, I asked the question: what explains the difference in the level of democracy between Kenya and South Korea? . I hypothesized that colonial legacy, economic development, and political leadership explain the difference in the level of democracy in Kenya and South Korea. . Restate your findings / conclusions . I found that South Korea has a higher level of democracy than Kenya. VI. Bibliography or Works Cited .
