Reflective Essay “wicked problems”

Paper details  

Rittle and Webber reflection essay:

For your essay you will read another classic in social policy (the article to read is located under the “Power Point and other files tab”). Horst Rittel and Melvin M. Webber coined the term “wicked problems” to denote difficult and often contradictory requirements placed on individuals and institutions when dealing with social dilemmas. There are many examples of “wicked problems” but in the criminal justice field you can think of issues like the war on drugs, mass incarceration, gun control, crime control in general, and so on as being “wicked problems” because there is no real solution to them. In other words the arena of social problems is like a perpetual game of whack-a-mole rather than a game of chess where there is a final gambit and endgame.

When applying ethics to wicked problems it should be obvious that concepts of good or bad are not objective because the question is “good or bad for whom” and even more importantly “what do we mean by good or bad”. After carefully reading the article you will write a reflection essay. For your essay you must address the following:

· What strategies can be employed to “solve” “wicked problems” (make sure you reference the article)?

· What are some other possible ways to tackle wicked problems in your view?

· When approaching “wicked problems” what kind of ethical principles presented in your text do you think are best suited for dealing with these problems?

· Give an example of a “wicked problem” in the criminal justice system (I’m choosing war on drugs) and explain how you would approach it based on the ethical concepts you have studied thus far.

This essay review should be a minimum of five full pages in length, double-spaced, which does NOT include the Abstract, Cover page, or the References page. Please use APA formatting and use 12 point type and Times New Roman font.
