Ethical Case Study about: investment in the private companies used to build prisons “privatization of prisons”

“type of Morally Investment”

Here’s the idea:

Investment in privatization of prisons is an unethical issue in which it benefits private companies as well as the political parties that encourage the overuse of prisons as the best method of crime deterrent.

Why there is no an ethical investment in private or public companies that provide employment opportunities for minorities who are targeted as criminals. By investing in these companies the crime rate will drop since most of the crime is related to drugs and the economic situations that led to drive to criminal acts. Investing will provide a rehabilitation programs more effective that in the prisons. It will insure a brighter future by having stable jobs to save them and drift them away from the involvement illegal activities.

It should be 4 to 5 pages long.

Case Study Format

1.  Brief opening paragraph in which you state that you will be examining a particular case (mention it) or comparing several  cases (mention   them) for the sake of getting a better understanding of a certain issue (mention it).

2.  Introduce the issue of controversy. Try to  present it in the  manner which best frames the controversy so both or all sides can be adequately be appreciated.

3.  Bring an author or two into the discussion of the issue. Briefly discuss the major views.(You can also do this at a later time in the case study, as seems most fitting).

4.  Introduce case or cases in all details relevant to the direction of your inquiry (know your direction before writing). Make sure to reference your factual sources. If they come from personal experience or personal interviews, document that.

5.  Discuss briefly the other issues -if any – present in this case/these compared cases than the one you’re focusing on.

6.  Re-frame the issue in the context of this case  or these compared cases to best highlight the moral dilemma involved.

7.  Background: any details of the outside world that impact on the case(s), historically, locally, regionally, nationally, or internationally; including law, custom, or accident.

8.  Identify alternative solutions for the dilemma – 2 or 3 – and briefly discuss.

9.  Deliberate over alternatives and make a reasoned choice.

9a. If the case is from the past, briefly compare your solution to the one actually chosen.

10. Assess what the general lesson is, especially in terms of how this problem can be avoided inthe future. The largest sections of a case study should be 8 and 9.
