Conclusion

You should conclude your Wiki paper with a ‘One Minute Message’ or ‘Elevator Message’ addressed to a relevant senior government or non-government policy advisor. This means a half page with three sections – (1) to summarize the topic, or some aspect of the topic, as a policy problem, (2) rationalization of the preferred option, and (3) a clear and specific proposal in simple language without jargon for policy-level actions.

References

Please use the Wikipedia reference style. Provide a citation for every sentence, statement, thought, or bit of data not your own, giving the author, year, AND page. For dictionary references for English-language terms, I strongly recommend you use the Oxford English Dictionary. You can reference foreign-language sources but please also provide translations into English.

Note: Before writing your wiki article on the UBC Wiki, it may be helpful to review the tips in Wikipedia: Writing better articles.[2] (Note that - if you look on the edit screen for this page when you are logged in - you will also see this as an example of how to create a reference!)
