Select a topic for your research paper. The paper will include the concepts that will be covered throughout the course. The topic can be related to any aspect of homeland security you find interesting. You may not re-use a paper you have previously submitted in another course. Make sure you do not select a topic that involves classified information! Select a topic for which you can access the information you need to complete the paper.

Review the Research Paper instructions to make sure you select a topic that will include all of the required elements. Not reading the instructions ahead of time is not an acceptable reason for omitting required elements from the research paper.

For the research paper you will apply one of the lenses described in Unit II to the homeland security issue you selected.

Identify your topic of choice and discuss your rationale for choosing the topic. What does it mean to you? Why is it important to the field? What is its significance to society? Explain which conceptual lens you will apply to your topic and why you selected this lens. Describe (do not just list) the theories.
