Your assignment is to write an advocacy letter addressing the topic of trafficking and smuggling of migrants. Your letter should argue in support of ONE of the approaches to this issue outlined in the module, either the view in Part A or the view in Part B, or perhaps you might suggest an alternative solution. Form an opinion, support it with research, and identify a potential audience (a politician or public figure). You did not need to send the letter, and it does not matter which stance you take. Your letter will be evaluated on how clearly you state your viewpoint and how well you support your views with scholarly research.
Your letter should be approximately 1000-1200 words and should:
- Advocate for a specific issue with clear and direct action
- Establish your expertise (from research or personal experience)
- Support your position with evidence (cite at least 3 scholarly sources)
- NOTE: Your scholarly sources CANNOT include course materials, newspaper, nor encyclopedia articles.
Refer to ESC Library guide/video on “How do I find a scholarly or peer-reviewed article?”
