Set of issues emerging from a specific case study
Directions for Case Study Analysis
• (1600 word minimum) in-depth analysis of a particular set of issues emerging from a specific case (provided by instructor). This includes recognizing the specific moral questions and/or dilemma(s), identifying the relevant ethical principles/rules, and providing a set of concrete recommendations. Thus, it should include these three components:
(I) Statement of the Problem(s):
Firstly, what are the moral questions that this case presents? (e.g., What are the ethical issues at stake? What are the moral dilemmas/tensions?) You do not need to provide the various details of the case – you can assume the reader is familiar with these. Once you have identified the range of possible moral questions, which one is central to the case?
(II) Resolution(s) to the Problem(s):
Secondly, provide answers to the central ethical question identified in (i) above. Second, attempt to defend those answers by providing the argumentative rationale. In so doing you should identify the operative moral principles/rules; establish why those principles/rules were chosen and others excluded; demonstrate work in specifying and/or generalizing as necessary; weigh the respective principles and rules to articulate how they support your conclusions; also give reasons why other alternatives/positions were rejected or deprioritized. Third, you should demonstrate awareness of topics/issues in the assigned reading and course lectures that are pertinent to the case; seek to integrate assigned readings/lectures into your analysis of the problem.
Thirdly, provide concrete and specific recommendations for the course(s) of action to take by the various parties. To do this, you should think creatively and prudently about the specific ways your moral conclusion (from section ii) is to implement. Delineate these recommendations with short bullet points describing the particular recommendations.
