What the impact of the differences between systems has had for citizens:
Use the following guidelines, making a clear and informed statement about what the impact of the differences between
systems has had for citizens:
1. Identify two countries you want to study. You must put these countries into context in one of the following
categories, given their differing:
for ‘developing’ countries VS ‘more advanced’: periphery, semi-periphery or cord status, using the World Systems
2. Identify the specific manifestations of two countries’ so-called ‘models’ or features of core/semi-p/periphery
status, looking at
–interest groups and so on.
3. Identify similarities between countries first as this is a very important part of your project. This will help you to
identify what the key difference is between your chosen cases. This will help you to identify your dependent variable
and independent variables. The dependent variable will be the most important feature of your essay because this is what
will help you to explain the key differences between systems.
4. Identify impacts of these differences you have identified on citizens.
