Write a Backgrounder Paper for the Case Study provided in the attached files.
The backgrounder paper is supposed to provide some solid, well-researched (and annotated!) sources as a foundation for your discussion about the case. It is NOT supposed to offer opinions, direction, resolutions, conclusions, or otherwise attempt to sway the group in a particular direction.
The better the backgrounder, the less extra research the rest of the group may need to do to support your case study conclusions.
Further, this is supposed to be a paper — so not just a collection of facts and annotations – but it is supposed to drill down on some specific aspect of the case and provide solid academic research (not Google scans!) that supports the data. It is NOT supposed to survey the landscape of the whole case— too wide, too shallow, and risks trying to resolve the case!
Your task (as an objective ethics advisory panel) is to provide only objective information to support a balanced ethical assessment of this proposed program, and objective information to support any recommendations on whether or not it should be implemented, giving good reasons for your conclusions that also take into consideration the “wicked problem” it is intended to address. The backgrounder paper should only provide objective information from 3-5 resources, not the assessment of the case or any recommendations for the case.
