Further explain what it entails, consequences, and who is involved.
The problem: A Brief Review of the Literature. Present what is discussed in the current literature (i.e., academic journals preferably peer-reviewed) related to the selected problem/issue, evidence (i.e., justification of the existence and relevance) theories related to problem/issue, and approaches for addressing it.
Potential Solutions for the issue/problem. Based on the reviewed literature, discuss ways to address the adverse consequences of the issue/problem discussed previously in the paper.
Conclusions. A brief summary of what is discussed in the body of the paper. No new information should be added. The introductory section informed the reader what he or she was about to read.
