The politics memo should again start with an abstract of no more than 150 words, and should
have a short introduction and conclusion. It should address the following questions (at least):
1. Who were the important stakeholders? What were their interests and sources of
Stakeholders are those people who are affected by the problem or the proposed solution. This
will most likely focus on the general public and interest groups, although it could also include
state and local governments interested in a federal policy or a federal agency affected by
legislation, for example.
2. Who were the important political players? What were their incentives?
Focus here on those who can make the policy decision, e.g., the members of the legislature or
executive or administrative agency. Who were the important players? Why were they important?
What did they stand to gain or lose politically?3
3. Why did the outcome turn out the way it did?
Don’t just say that one side had more votes! Why did individual decision makers or groups
decide a certain way?
For example, was the issue decided purely on the merits, or did other factors play a role? Was
one side able to use procedural rules to their advantage? What compromises or deals may have
been necessary to secure the outcome? Was the proposal amended or refined in order to gather
more support? Did some stakeholders change their position during the course of the debates?
Each memo should also have a list of sources at the end along with in-text citations (Chicago Style).
