Description

Policy Briefing Note (20%) – > short term rentals (e.g., Air BnB) in BC
Overview:
A public policy briefing note is a concise explanatory paper produced for the purposes
of positioning an issue for policy makers and decision makers. It is a tool designed
to provide critical information clearly and succinctly for relevant stakeholders who lack
the time to do in-depth research of their own. Importantly, a public policy briefing note
identifies critical considerations (background, analysis, impacts, etc. etc.) and argues
for the adoption of a specific policy position / recommendation.
Students will complete a 2-page public policy briefing note (plus a third page for
citations). Students will need to summarize the policy issue, position the policy within
the policy cycle, identify government and other key stakeholder roles in the policy, and
identify social justice considerations.
The assignment has three major objectives: firstly, to increase student familiarity with an
issue of public importance; secondly, to increase student familiarity with literature and
research relevant to the issue; and finally, to support students improve their intellectual
and impactful writing skills through clear, convincing evidence-based approaches to
policy (argumentation / decision-making). Reminder, briefing notes do not have a title
page! However, APA 7th edition citation is still required.
Note 1: You are to either (a) make a recommendation to improve / amend a
current policy or (b) introduce a new policy.

Summary
A maximum of three (3) sentences that summarize the information in the briefing note. Make
your language clear and concise. Assume that you are presenting this briefing note to a busy
policy/decision-maker (e.g., judge, corporate executive, government official): what do they
absolutely need to know? Present only the most pertinent information, as you understand it. Full
sentence structure is required.
Background
Briefly describe the issue, including any historical and contemporary facts/contexts to understand
(and underscore) the importance of the policy (need for action) as well as the situation from which
the issue has emerged. Identify what is the issue? How has it come about? What, if anything, has
been done in the past by government or other key stakeholders, etc.? Bullets can be appropriate,
here, when trying to capture the reader’s attention and highlight very particular or key
(“takeaway”) information. Full sentence structure is otherwise preferred.
Current Analysis
Clarify the issue in terms of what is happening now and by explaining the research/your thinking
on the current state of the issue. Be sure to focus on where the issue may be located in the policy
cycle and what the role of government (or, other stakeholders) might be. Bullets can be
appropriate, here, when trying to capture the reader’s attention and highlight very particular or
key (“takeaway”) information. Full sentence structure is otherwise preferred.
Potential Impact(s)
Identify social justice considerations. Why does the issue call for change, action, or attention?
What happens if no action is taken, if the issue is not addressed? Be sure to include what would
happen if the policy (action) you are explaining is fully implemented. What impact could the
proposed policy have? Focus on the social justice impacts of acting, not acting, and/or acting
differently. Full sentence structure is required.
Recommendation(s)
Include any specific recommendations/actions that you may have. (This may be that the
issue/topic need further research, or steps be taken to increase awareness, etc.). Bullets can be
appropriate, here, when trying to capture the reader’s attention and highlight very particular or
key (“takeaway”) information. Full sentence structure is otherwise preferred.
