Produced by Students at Duke University in the Fall of 2009
These pages were written by students in Duke’s “World Cup and World Politics” class during the Fall term of 2009. The students all initially wrote individual research papers, and based on these papers we formed groups around the topics below. They then collectively produced these web pages. Please do not quote or draw from these essays without proper citation. The authors for each web page are noted at the beginning of the main page for each topic.
