Building on Case Study Proposals

  • Stakeholders: Who are the people impacted by this issue locally or in our larger community? Who are the major individuals, organizations involved? 
  • Consider sources: are there social media channels, meeting minutes, press releases, annual reports, or news articles that address the issue? Scholarly articles or books for movements?
  • Language: What language, terms, or acronyms are important for this work or this organization? Are there important synonyms or slightly broader or narrower terms?
