Democracy is predominantly practiced by the western world. The disdain Arab nations have towards colonial powers has given democracy a negative connotation. Discuss the causes and effects of the lack of democratic governance in the Middle East. The populations of oil-producing states in the Middle East benefit from the distributive nature of the state, and thus have no reason to pursue greater political freedoms. Non-oil producing states on the other hand have an authoritative one-party system where the regimes promise economic well-being and security/stability in their region in exchange for the population’s political freedoms.

Many TED speakers are published researchers, and many of them base their TED talks on their research: before you look for other sources. Choose a TED speaker that  has published on human trafficking  and write a literature  review on it. Use only published, peer-reviewed articles for your references. Although you are building up to your own argument and documenting your research process, try to avoid a personal tone. Statements like “I believe” or “I could not find…” put the focus more on you than on your topic and make you seem less credible. You usually don’t need to talk about yourself unless you have a really good reason e.g. personal experience–used sparingly–or primary research–interviews, surveys, etc. that you have personally written and conducted.
