So I want to do an EPQ, I kind of think the topic of geography isn’t spoken about much and I found it really interesting in high school so I want to do geography and if possible I want it to be blended in with law aswell.

If you know any topics with relate to law in geography please let me know!! Thanks

Hey,
Are you interested in Human or Physical Geog?

I'm currently doing it at A level and we're doing a unit on Global commons / Global governance, you may want to look into something along that line, maybe around the governance of Antarctica, and laws that could be proposed to protect it?

Alternatively, space Law could be an interesting one, as space is a global common... maybe looking at future colonisation of Mars, who owns it (resource management/exportation of minerals to earth)? and how might colonies be run? You could incorporate history and see if lessons are to be learned from the British empire (management of colonies wise)?


Hope this helps give you ideas

Ethan

Sounds like you want to do your EPQ on geopolitics.

- Ethiopian Dam and its effects on Egypt
- Corruption within South America and if its geography impacts this
- The politics of Japans energy crisis
- Climate politics, is global warming targets being used as an appeasement opportunity for China(this is quite complex tho)
- The potential impact of the Saharah desert travelling South
- Human rights dispute in eastern Europe and if the flat plain land contributes (quite an historic look on geography)
- Potential impacts of China taking over the US as the world's biggest economy before 2030
- Hong Kong as a strategic trade hub for the West moving forwards
- The importance of the Suez Canal, looking at who is really in charge of world trade
- The rise and fall of Zambia
- The impact of oil companies on African villages, false promises
- Would it be appropriate for first world countries to hinder 3rd world countries industrialisation in the name of climate change V the ethics of doing this
- How valuable has the UN been in preventing world conflict
- Climate change refugees in the Pacific (Kiribati)
- Rwanda becoming Africas Singapore
- Chinas influence on Africa
- Turkeys acts that make it a potential political hub of the future (Armenia V Azerbaijan war)

I could keep going but ill stop there aha.
I would suggest reading Prisoners of Geography by Tim Marshall,
Documentaries are also a very good way into topics like these to have a look around to see if you can find any.

Sorry current world affairs is kind of my thing so I could go on for days here

I'd highly recommend the Ethiopian dam one... I was planning on doing that for my EPQ but couldn't as I was studying a level geog 🤦*♂️.

It's got lots of potential to talk about environmental, social or economic impacts...

Yea I do A level geography, I wonder what their justification was to why you couldn't do it. In my opinion, the geography syllabus is a little limiting when it comes to current affairs and solving problems. I wish they looked at the engineering implementations of building on a multi-hazard zone etc.

Its an interesting ethical debate too due to the benefits for Ethiopia and the all our war Egypt could end up in. Especially with the policy relating to who 'owns' the water and the failure to have meetings. Though China is backing Ethiopia so why would they stop the project with Chinas dominance in the world forever-growing.

I ended up doing my EPQ on water insecurity in Mexico City and looking at if there was a sustainable solution to there future (it was a mix of holistic ideas and engineering)
