Question Description

 

 

I ATTACHED THE ASSIGNMENT THAT NEEDS TO BE REVISED.

INSTRUCTOR’S FEEDBACK

Although you captured some of the key ideas in Zewei and part of the Cragg, Arnold, and Muchlinski article, you seem to have missed the core idea of the Steinberg article, which is that NGOs have growing influence in the international arena, and yet are not controlled or regulated in any way. He suggests there should be some sort of accountability or review of NGOs so that they cannot unfairly impact a state such as Israel. Even if you disagree with the premise, it is interesting to read the article and consider how NGOs interact with states and what their role is, or should be, in the system. You also didn’t quite answer the question about the Cragg, Arnold and Muchlinski article, which is focused on why business and human rights were not linked earlier.

Please see the attachment for further comments and the scoring rubric. Let me know if you have questions.
