This topic statement focuses on both the policy issue you plan to investigate this semester and why this policy area interests you.

This policy analysis topic statement is designed to get you started on your larger policy analysis project which will culminate in the writing of a policy analysis memo useful to those involved in serious policy debate. This topic statement focuses on both the policy issue you plan to investigate this semester and why this policy area interests you.
The topic statement will have you: (a) identify a general policy area of focus (such as “environment,” or “health care,” or “education”) that interests you; (b) discuss a more specific issue or problem or controversy within the general policy area that could use a new policy response; (c) place this issue in an appropriate policy context (deciding, for example, if this is an issue that would be best addressed at the national/federal level, state level, or local level); and (d) describe your interest in this area of public policy.
Below will include specific instructions, I will continue this policy analysis project with you on a different order for a larger project. For now, it is only a policy analysis topic statement.
