Your memo should be 5-8 pages (double-spaced) and contain the following three sections: 1) brief description of Allison’s models; 2) description of relevant actors and their preferences/demands in the situation (Libya or Syria); 3) a discussion of why you believe one of the models better describes the decision. For section 2, there are a few newspaper articles on [email protected] that will help provide you with background on the decision. Do not feel compelled to do additional research – there should be sufficient information in the articles to make a case for at least one model in each case.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
