SAMPLE MINISTER BRIEF : HERE
Use this sample to help guide you through the writing of your ministerial brief. Party Leaders will follow the same format for their briefs with a focus on natural disaster preparedness and a brief background on the problem as a whole (as identified by their ministers).
SAMPLE PARTY LEADER BRIEF : HERE
Party leaders will have a slightly longer brief but the same time limit of 4 minutes. Though party leaders are focusing on natural disaster preparedness, they do need to make mention of what the platform of their whole party is – what their ministers are campaigning for and how they propose to solve the issues identified. The sample above is an exemplary one for party leaders to follow.
Reminders for submission of Briefs:
- Create a new document in google docs for your final brief
- Submit that document to turnitin on your due date
- Check back for comments on Turnitin to help revise your briefs before your final speech

Civil Wars are wars between groups or regions within the same territory/state/country.
The conflict in Syria is a good example of a Civil War (image taken from activistpost.com)
Rebellions are an uprising or organized resistance to a current government
The conflict in between the MILF and the government in Mindanao is a good example of a rebellion.
Revolutions are an overthrow of the current government in favor of a new government. A change is necessary for a revolution to occur.
The EDSA People Power Revolution in the Philippines was a good example of this.
