Project #97629 - Ethics Paper on Understanding Moral Stance on Rwanda Genocide

4 page ETHICS PAPER I’m doing a topic on the tragedy in Rwanda in 1994 To clearly grasp the interests of these real historical parties, you must research the conflict thoroughly to understand the people involved, their competing values, interests, and moral claims. The Scenario for the Paper For this paper you are imagine that you are the U.S. United Nations delegate assigned to arbitrate a specific aspect of the dispute in the conflict. You must first introduce yourself to each side by writing a report of how you see the nature of the moral dimensions of the Rawanda conflict. Neither side trusts you. To succeed in your role you must grasp the moral issues at stake in the conflict, you must be able to define them clearly and understand the reasons why the different sides might disagree on the issues. Moreover, you must be able to help each side understand more clearly the moral claims the opposing side makes as well as why they feel these are so important. This is a task of mutual understanding (not finger-pointing, nor excuse-making). Your goal for this paper: undestand the moral stance(s) on each side and to convince both sides that you are a fair judge, that you can fully grasp the strengths and weaknesses on both sides of the conflict, and that you are capable of remaining open to how the conflict will eventually play out. In order to pull this off: Special Note on Your Goal: Do not mistake understanding for "giving your opinion on how to proceed" or "what to do next." There should be no mention of: • Solutions to the problem(s) • Resolutions to the conflict • Prescriptive measures to move forward 1. In order to present your case to both sides, you MUST do two things. First, you must demonstrate that you are well informed as to the facts of the situation and are capable of zeroing in on specific issues (and a small number of issues is easier to address) 2. Second, you must be sure to explain and use ethical resources that are not obviously biased. That is, you must use the Consequestialism theory, and Rawl’s “Theory of Justice in the paper order to make your case to each side your primary task is to demonstrate clearly your understanding of the ethical theories. Do so by: o Explaining the theories first o Using the framework of the theories to ground your claims o Not mistaking "historical research" for "philosophical explanation and application" (see special notes below) Do not make this as a "for/against" paper for only one side (i.e. don't write a paper for and against the violent people (Hutu) that caused the Rawanda genocide alone - you must think through the perspective of others (Tutsi, government, economy etc) and this is different from simply marshaling out an "against Hutus" side). Also, in order to set the stage you must give a brief account of the nature of the conflict and the basic facts. These "basic facts" MUST NOT absorb more than two pages of text. The bulk of your work and effort must be dedicated to the moral dimensions of the conflict, not to facts, figures, andtimelines. Failure to adhere to this two page maximum may result in an automatic 1/3 of a letter grade deduction at the discretion of the instructor.
