assignment should be word-processed (handwritten assignments are not accepted),
using time new roman size 12 font, double spaced, with numbered pages The word
limits stated for this assignment excludes the reference list at the end of the
assignment but includes all text in the main body of the assignment (including
direct quotations, in-text citations, footnotes, tables, diagrams, and graphs).
Please be aware that exceeding the word count limit will affect the academic
judgment of the piece of work and may result in the award of a lower mark.
Appendices are not considered a supplement, and thus, will not be assessed as
part of the content of the assignment. As such, they will not contribute to the
grade awarded, however it may be appropriate to use an Appendices section for
any material which is a useful reference for the reader. Please note that
appendices are not included in the word count. The majority of references
should come from primary sources (e.g., journal articles, conference papers,
reports, etc.) although you can also utilise area-specific textbooks. You must
ensure that you use the Liverpool John Moore’s Harvard style of referencing.
Even though potential data sources and places to search for information are
provided, you are reminded that you should demonstrate original work and
critical thinking and refrain from plagiarism. You can use books, journals, and
Internet sources such as reports from organizations like WHO, World Bank, and
other UN agencies. All citations should be listed alphabetically by author’s
surname, however, where no author is cited then do it by the organization. This is
followed by a date – except where no date is available. Then by the title of the
article, chapter in edited text, or book title. If it is an Internet source, the
website address comes last.

Please indicate the word count length at the end of your
