So this is for a core Geopolitical Sciences course, and naturally there are about 500 people writing about blood diamonds or Iraq. If someone can point me in the direction of something new that I didn't think of and that likely won't be done 100 times over, I would appreciate the help. I want something I can learn from, and I'm not in a big rush. Here is the prompt, just a simple 4-6 pager:
"In this paper, you will analyze a current critical geopolitical issue, applying both geoscience and political science tools and principles. Note the issue must go beyond a single state and have impact on the international system."
Paper should include both political and geographical analysis and must be a current issue. Could have started 10 years ago or something, but must still be an active issue.
Thanks to anyone who can save me from writing about something boring.
