Written Assignment: Comparing Factors that Lead to Underdevelopment
This assignment calls for you to select two Less Developed Countries (LDCs) and assess if there are any factors that are common to both as far as their development is concerned. Your two countries must come from the following list: Nigeria, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Central African Republic, North Korea, Angola, Ghana, Chad, Yemen, Cuba,, Zimbabwe,  Malawi, Indonesia, , Morocco, South Africa, Iraq, Libya, Malaysia, Uganda, Panama.

Source: United Nations, 2014 It may help you to be familiar with the concept of poor governance, because this often plays a significant part in why a country is underdeveloped. According to the World Bank, governance is defined as how power is exercised in the management of a country’s economic and social resources for development. Therefore, if good governance is synonymous with sound development management, then poor governance means a government has failed to deliver desirable outcomes for its people. This could mean that officials are corrupt, not transparent with their decisions, unqualified to make decisions in the first place, or prone to make decisions based on racism, tribalism or ethnicity — all of which are very common practices in LCDs. The most common factor used to decide whether countries are underdeveloped nations is through the Human Development Index. Countries that are underdeveloped in nature offer poor health care, few educational opportunities, a low average life expectancy, a low number of job opportunities, few recreational facilities, poor economic growth, a low standard of living and a poverty-stricken life. 
Instructions: Write at least a six-page paper, in which you: Identify the two LDCs (from the list above), which you will compare and assess. Explain why you chose these two countries. Analyze the features that the LDCs have in common using at least five of the following nine factors (clearly label the five factors using headings): geography extractive institutions governmental corruption internal or external conflicts shaky financial systems unfair judicial systems ethnic, racial or tribal disparities lack or misuse of natural resources closed (statist) economies Use at least seven credible sources. Wikipedia, encyclopedias, dictionaries, blogs and other material that does not qualify as reputable academic source work at the college level. Do not use sources that are older than seven years. Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements: Be typed, double-spaced (no extra spacing between paragraphs), using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides. Citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions. Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date (do not include an abstract).The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length. Graphs, tables and photographs are not counted toward the length of the paper; only what you have written as text itself. The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are: Determine why private investment, open political competition and the intelligent use of natural resources can serve as incentives to further economic development.Decide why good governance, a sound financial system, and a fair system of judicial justice are necessary to development.Assess why enforceable environmental regulations are critical to sustaining development. Use technology and information resources to research issues in sociology of developing countries. Write clearly and concisely about sociology of developing countries using proper writing mechanics.

How does the principle of confidentiality impact the therapeutic relationship?

 Social workers are bound by the NASW Code of Ethics (2008) to provide informed consent with every client. A signed informed consent form protects the client and the social worker. It exemplifies the profession’s respect for its clients, allows for self-determination, and is the cornerstone of good social work practice. Sometimes, though, reporting of confidential information is mandated by law. 

 
Post a description of the importance of confidentiality when working with your client. How does the principle of confidentiality impact the therapeutic relationship? Then, explain your understanding of mandated reporting and how it empowers vulnerable populations.
Support your posts with specific references to this week’s resources. Be sure to provide full APA citations for your references

Give an argument for legalizing active euthanasia and an argument against it.

For this assignment, you will compose a well-written and thoughtful short-essay of 500-750 words in length (2-3 pages). Select and answer one of the four questions provided.
You are not writing a “five paragraph essay,” but a college level paper. The introduction should clearly state what you will address in the paper and in what order.
Example:”There has been much debate about moral relativity in the last decade and I would like to continue that discussion here. After providing a scholarly definition of moral relativity, I will argue that even though moral relativity has some merit, it is still possible to hold some actions as objectively wrong. Specifically, willful murder and rape, at least conceptually, are held with enough universal disdain that they can be seen as objectively wrong regardless personal opinions.”
Then for this paper, the next paragraph would contain the definition of moral relativity followed by some scholarly objections to the theory. These objections will segue into another paragraph justifying one holding that some actions are or should be seen as objectively wrong. Then the paper will transition into a paragraph or two on how willful murder and rape, as concepts, are seen as wrong by enough societies that they can be seen as objectively wrong. 
Format & Expectations

State your thesis in an introduction, The thesis is the answer you want to defend.
Make your case and present your position, which supports that thesis, using at least three well-supported reasons embodying logic, reason, and research.
Give possible objections to your arguments, answer these objections and restate your conclusion.
Essays should include a Works Cited page following MLA Style.
For grading expectations, please see the iRubric for this assignment in 

Give an argument for legalizing active euthanasia and an argument against it.  [You must pick one of these arguments and side with it as your own position, and the other you will present as the counterargument to your position. For this paper, you can see “active euthanasia” as either physician assisted suicide or what is more commonly called mercy killing.]
