Government Issues arise in a variety of places, whether it's close to home in city ordinances or national policy, trying to understand legalities within numerous layers of context is overwhelming at times. Whether the topic is privacy, military (military lives), veterans or national security.
How to research these themes: Research governmental guidelines. Research the federal and international policies in similar global economies for comparison. Research health (stress, mental health, morbidity) outcomes for people in government focused careers. Research the security nets in place for our soldiers.
Start out by searching the military websites. You can do this by searching in Google for "anything in site:.mil" and you can search "site:.gov" for other general government material.
