If you could select any single reform to the United Nations to enhance its effectiveness, what would it be? Why? What specific problem are you trying to address and how would your proposed solution ‘fix’ it? Be specific. Your answer had to discuss an actual reform/change to the structure or procedures of the United Nations. Potential reforms to discuss would be to a) eliminate the veto power, b) add more permanent members, c) add more veto members, d) make it so that there must be 2 vetoes for a resolution to fail in the Security Council, e) have the UN focus more on social and economic problems where it has been more effective, etc. You also had to discuss what problem your chosen reform would fix and how it would ‘fix’ it. 7

(2) After heading back to your room to decompress from the exam, your roommate brings up the topic of terrorism after reading about the recent terror attack at a Turkish university on Thursday. In the conversation, your roommate implies that there are definitive causes of terrorism and asks you what you think they might be. What is your response? Are there definitive causes of terrorism? Be sure to explain the difference between causation and correlation and list at least three distinct factors that we know to be correlated (conducive) to terrorism in the world today. There are no definitive causes of terrorism, only factors that correlate with its occurrence. Causation means that some variable always causes terrorism, while correlation means that some variable often, but not always leads to terrorism. You then need to list three factors conducive to terrorism such as a) lack of education, b) poverty, c) inequality, d) political grievances, e) lack of conflict resolution mechanisms in their society such as the rule of law/courts, f) globalization and modernity, g) extremist ideologies through religion, politics, social views, etc. 8

    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.
