The essay has two parts: i) a literature review of policy relevant research on the topic of their choice and ii) a research proposal that aims to expand knowledge available to policy makers (on that topic). The research proposal should contain at least three (sub-)projects, with some detail on the research question, methodology, and sources of information.
