Question Description

Assignment 2 meets the following course objectives:

  • Apply a sociological perspective to the social world.
  • Analyze contemporary social issues using the sociological imagination and use sociological theories and concepts to analyze everyday life.
  • Demonstrate the ability to identify, locate, and retrieve information related to the topics in the course.


The primary goal of this exercise is to apply your developing sociological knowledge and skills to the analysis of a current event.

Writing Expectations

This should be 4-6 pages long, double-spaced, 12pt font (arial or times new roman), with 1" margins.


Choosing a Current Event. A current event refers to something that is happening in the world at present and they are usually described on the news and in mass media. You must choose a report (written, from the radio, or televised) of an event that has been reported on within 3 months of the assignment deadline. Remember, the event you choose must have some relevance to the study of society, and you must properly cite the source from which you got your report.

Describe the Current Event. Second, you will need to provide a brief summary of the current event. This should include details such as location, timing (i.e is this an ongoing event, does it appear to be a one time event, is this an example of an event that happens frequently), people involved, and any analysis offered by the report(er).

Analyzing the Current Event. The final step in the process is conducting an analysis of the current event using knowledge you have gained from the course to-date. The most important thing here is that the analysis should not just be your opinion about the current event, but grounded in sociological theory and prior research. You will need to use at least 4 sociological concepts covered in this course to analyze the current event (i.e. social construction, stratification, social control, crime, deviance). (hint: sociological concepts should be clearly identified, defined and then applied; any paraphrasing or direct quotes used from another source should include APA formatted in-text citations and a full citation at the end of the essay).

Description of the Current Event: Carlos Ghosn


Carlos Ghosn is the former Titan and chairperson of the Nissan, a global auto industry.
Carlos has Brazilian, French and Lebanese citizenship (Sieg, 2019). The Ex-Nissan Chief was
released from detention on $9 million after being held into hostage for more than three months in
custody without bail on account of suspicion of under-reporting his financial compensation by
Japanese prosecutors (Sieg, 2019). It is also important to realize that Carlos was arrested on
another account of suspicion and aggravated breach of trust and put into prison under
interrogation without the input of his lawyers. The arrest and detention of Carlos Ghosn sparked
a public outcry from different countries of the world like France. It is a case that has led to fresh
scrutiny of the Japanese criminal system where almost 99.9% of people charged lead to a
successful conviction (Sieg, 2019). The arrest of Carlos was broadly shared in the international
media and led to an outcry about what needs fixing in the Japanese hostage criminal system. The
Carlos Ghosn case opened a lot of Pandora box about how the Japanese penal system falls below
the standards recognized around the world.
Although Carlos was finally granted bail after spending several days in detention even
though he maintains his innocence and willingness to stay in Japan until the conclusion of his
case (Sieg, 2019)....
