Read the broadsheets (international news sections) everyday for a fortnight before you go, this way, you will have fersh knowledge.
The system I used successfully was to pick 5/6 hotspots (eg Iraq, Israel/Palestine, N. Ireland, Balkans, etc) and learn as much as you can about them - history of country, conflicts, political/economical situation and so on. This way, it is highly likely that the 2/3 places they ask you to talk about you will already be familiar with.
Basically, you need to read a quality broadsheet newspaper on a daily basis. Learn the facts, consider the implications and form your own opinions.
