We were told not to pick topics too current, as the facts are constantly changing, and there probably has not been enough research conducted to have a proper structure. If you did this topic, you would have to pick a cut-off date, and discard any evidence or sources published after tat point to avoid confusion or any contradictions. I'm not going to lie, having done an EPQ, this would be an extremely dificult topic to write about and get good marks in. You could do an EPQ on international law however, and potentially use the current conflict as a short case study, but that would all be solely dependant on the sources that currently exist regarding this topic.

hey again lol - i agree with the person above - it's best to make your life easier and choose something that has an easily deducible answer!

i came up with my topic, which was about whether anti-terrorism laws conflict with human rights, by finding an interesting case.

i've found a list of key international law cases. maybe go through these, see which interest you, and see what debates/principles/questions surround them?

6. Legal Status of Eastern Greenland (Denmark v Norway) (1933)
7. Trail Smelter (United States of America/Canada) (1938 and 1941)
8. Trial Before the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg (1945–46)
9. The Early United Nations Advisory Opinions (1948–62)
10. The South West Africa Cases (1949 to 1971)
11. North Sea Continental Shelf (Federal Republic of Germany v Netherlands; Federal Republic of Germany v Denmark) (1969)
12. Barcelona Traction, Light and Power Company (Belgium v Spain) (1970)
13. Tyrer v United Kingdom (1978)

16. The Nuclear Weapons Advisory Opinions (1996)
17. Gabcíkovo-Nagymaros Project (Hungary/Slovakia) (1997)
18. Vivendi v Argentina (1997–2010)
