Your argument may focus on discussing possible solutions and/or addressing root causes in order to prevent the problem from occurring in the first place.

They have *not* read your research paper, and, while they may be familiar with your topic, their awareness level will vary and most have not read extensively or conducted research as you have.

Provide relevant background information and details for readers unfamiliar with the issue
