describe the issue at hand, articulate personal position, present competing arguments, and then outline a vision of how the state of that area should be ten years from now, and discuss ways forward in achieving that vision. Specifically, these papers should identify a desired “end-state” for the United States, identify competing interests and hurdles to achieving that end-state, explore trends underlying technology or policy issues, and provide recommendations on how best to balance competing interests and achieve the desired end-state for the greater good of the United States, in terms of its security and prosperity at home and abroad.These papers are expected to be original works of significant research and analysis (not simple reporting of facts or inventory of capabilities).

paper should feature significant analysis of the current state of affairs, the desired end-state in which the policy problem is mitigated, addressed, or solved, and the “difference” between the two: that is, the difference between where we are, and where we need to be. This analysis of the “difference,” or “gap,” leads to recommendations of what needs to be done to close the gap: these recommendations, combined together, should form the foundation or the elements of policy solution, to close that gap. Also paper should spend time discussing the implementation of the recommendations – who implements, what it will take, specific tasks, how you will measure success and know your recommendations are working, likely hurdles to implementation, other concerns/stakeholders/costs, ways to overcome hurdles/costs/concerns, and other general aspects of policy planning. Of course, this is a simplified description of the elements of a policy paper, but these are the elements will be looking for.
