European Union strategy for Belarus. Question for the topic will be : Ongoing political demonstrations and protests against Lukashenko’s government in Belarus, and The EU Sanctions.
The next phase is research. Note that this research should include primary sources, peer-reviewed articles and scholarly books. The number of sources used in a paper reflects the researcher’s level of effort and understanding of the topic, provided they have read the material.
The number of sources required for research papers is a function of paper length: 8-page papers should have a minimum of 8 sources, 10-page papers should have a minimum of 10 sources. All sources listed on the REFERENCES page must be cited in the text. Roughly a third of the time allotted to this project is devoted to the research phase.
An annotated bibliography is an organized list of sources with an accompanying paragraph that describes, explains, and/or evaluates each entry in terms of quality, authority, and relevance. An annotated bibliography usually incorporates the following:
A citation in correct APA, MLA, or Chicago/Turabian format.
Each citation is followed by a brief descriptive summary. What are the main points or arguments of the source? What topics are covered?
After you have summarized the source, critically evaluate it. Where was it published and what does that say about the source? Who was the author? What are the biases of the article/source? How does this source compare to others you have found? When was the article published? Is it still relevant?

European Union strategy for Belarus
Format of the Paper
The paper should stay within the page limits listed above [12-point type with standard margins]; it should be formatted in standard research paper form — i.e. including reference notes (either at the bottom of the page or at the end of the paper — not “scientific notation”) and a bibliography. The format listed below should be used for both notes and bibliography.
An outline is a basement of your research paper from which you build up the whole paper. Each outline consists of three main parts the Introduction, the Body, and the Conclusion
This part should do the following: 1) state clearly the issue to be examined and indicate why it is important and why you have selected it as topic of research; 2) give a brief summary of the existing literature dealing with the topic and indicate the general conclusions reached in that literature, including both the areas of agreement and disagreement; and 3) indicate the basic argument of the paper, but need not provide the detailed evidence that will be employed in the final paper to support the argument.
