I’m working on a social science discussion question and need a sample draft to help me understand better.
Analyze the following conflict: “Who Do We Hire?”
First, write a short background about the nature of the conflict, using the following questions
What is the conflict about? When did the conflict start? What caused it?
Was it a series of events or one event? What was the trigger event(s)?
When did the conflict originate? Why did it occur?
Use a metaphor to describe your conflict.
Next, analyze your perceptions of each element of the conflict, using the following questions:
Expressed struggle: How has the conflict been expressed? What was the trigger event?
Interdependent parties: What binds the parties together? In what ways each party needs the other?
Perceived incompatible goals: What are the parties not getting?
Perceived scarce resources: Examples include time, money, affection, inclusion, oil, land, or other natural resources, etc.
Perceived interference to achieve goals: In what ways each party is interfering with the other’s goals?
In your analysis, you must incorporate ideas, concepts, and theory from the chapter(s) to support your thoughts, answers, and/or rationales. This way, you can demonstrate your understanding of the readings and key concepts.
