In this assignment, you are required to respond to the question “Why do good?” in the context of a real-world case study of global concern in strictly no more than 600-words (excluding references).
Note: Global concerns are issues that every nation in the world is concerned about, such as child labour, human trafficking, migration, torture, humanitarian intervention, pandemic, scarce resources, discrimination, wars, online privacy, etc. This list is non-exhaustive. The case study you select for this assignment should not be from the same topic as the GBA.
You will be assessed holistically and marks will be awarded for the following tasks:
- Present a real-world case study of global concern. You should identify relevant ethical considerations for discussion.
- Demonstrate ethical reasoning in your personal response to the question of “Why do good?”. You should make a claim and explain what doing good means in your case study (underline your claim), and apply any ethical theories you have learned in this course to support at least 2 reasons for your claim (number your reasons).
- Discuss possible constraints or limitations to any of the theories you have discussed within the context of this case study.
