  1. Hello there, i haven't had my EE talk but i would like to know what is expected of a human rights EE, if you have done a HR EE if would be preferred if you could answer my qn.
  2. Ok so what do you guys think about this? I have recently returned from a trip to Africa as my boyfriend lives there. I have opted to do my EE in visual arts and want to do something along the lines of linking art with the lives of people in townships in Africa how would I go about this? What research would I need to look at? Is there certain artists who look at the lives of the poor? thanks! xx
  3. Hey, I need your help fellow IB students. Do you think a topic like: "To what extent is it possible to extend human rights to non-human animals?" is ok? I'm not taking human rights, so I'd like to know if such topic would be even possible. Thanks in advance!
  4. Hi there, So I've just begun thinking about my EE and I've decided that I'm interested in the naturalisation of misogyny in pop culture or something along those lines. My questions on this are: - Would this fit into the subject of Human rights or world studies best? (or another subject you can think of, maybe English idk) - I know my initial idea is really broad, so any ideas on how I can narrow it down? - Is it a plausible topic? I've done some research and I haven't really found any EEs that are similar Thanks for the help
  5. My EE topic is human rights, with a question about the violations of capital punishment in the U.S. Because of the nature of my EE, I used sources written by inmates. In my abstract, do I need to address that most of them have no formal education? But the accounts are still valid because they live there (and they fact check with every other source). Thanks in advance!
  6. Hi guys! I need help on my ee topic. My subject is human rights. I am thinking about gender inequality or patriarchy issues... somewhere between those lines. I am not sure how to create a questions that goes towards human rights. Hope you guys can help me.
  7. Hello everyone, I am doing my EE on Human Rights and I have tried to get samples from internet, but I haven't found one that scored an A. I talked to my school and they sent me one, but it didn't receive many marks. I really would like to read one that received an A as a grade. Thank you for your time and understanding, D.
  8. I have decided to do my extended essay on the subject of Human Rights. I originally was going to write about the effects of forced child marriages in India, but I began to feel like that was a predictable and overused topic, so I decided to switch to something more recent: Rape victims in Mozambique are forced to marry their rapists. My one problem is that I don't know exactly how to formulate a question. I want to kind of talk about how they are justifying this fact, but I feel like that is also a commonly used approach. Any tips?
  9. hello guys! My EE hasn't officially started so i had to figure out on my own of what i'm supposed to do. ( this is because my school only gives out EE in February) Anyways, because i still have a while until they give the official presentation, being paranoid me, i have to start before i drive myself insane. So i have basically narrowed down to 3 subjects and have a vague idea on what to write: #1 Human Rights: Should the internet be a human right? #2 Psychology: Analysis of cartoon characters and possible psychological effects ( I know this is vague, but this is more of just a general idea) #3 English: The effect of a female child growing up with mass media VS. a child without. I know these are all kind of too broad, so just all general ideas. now here my question, would all this be viable EE topics?? ( cause i dont really know what is expected) and regarding the format of the EE how does it differ from PP?? (if you have taken MYP) also because my teachers have been saying a lot that the EE is very important when it comes to university admission, exactly how important? ( this is regardless of the bonus point and overall scores, like for example, if you have an interesting EE and the college is fascinated by your topic choice, how much does it affect your application?) also any other advice you can think off, would be extremely helpful and appreciated! THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!
  10. Hello, everyone! My tentative ee RQ is To what extent is the monitoring of electronic devices by the government an infringement of basic human rights? I just wanted opinions on it, specificallywhat topic group it would fit into (human rights or politics? maybe even history?)can it be argued and analyzed?is it even good???thanks! ~insaaf, IB1
  11. Hey guys, I am writing my extended essay in human rights (about violations of Article 25 in the treatment of internally displaced persons by Ukrainian government). And I noticed that the HR syllabus points out that Human Rights EEs will eventually become EEs in GloPo. My supervisor does not know anything about this - have you guys heard anything like that? If I am a part of the class of 2017, does it mean that my EE will have to be in GloPo? Thank you!
  12. I'll make my human rights EE about the child slavery in Somalia... my teacher approved my research question... now I have a problem of starting and arranging my EE although I have lots of information and examples in my mind. Help please?
  13. Version


    Examples of an EE in human rights. There are not many examples of this type of EE, so here are two with some notations.
  14. these are the 4 topics i have right now: it would be very much appreciated if you could help me choose one. TOPICS: 1. To what extent does the western bias affect the universal declaration of human rights in terms of cultural minorities? 2. To what extent is democracy the first step towards human rights? 3. To what extent does the Universal Declaration of human rights advocate for the cultural minorities? 4. To what extent is the censorship of Internet a violation of human rights?

    Help me!

    I've been thinking of changing my EE topic from "To what extent did the U.S. occupation of Iraq affect the treatment of women in Iraq?" to something more along the lines of "To what extent did the process of deBa'athification implemented by the United States after it's invasion of Iraq affect the reconstruction process, and were the effects positive or negative regarding the rights of women?". My EE category is human rights with a focus on women's rights. I feel that my previous topic was too broad, but now I'm worried it will be too narrow. Even though there is definitely a lot to cover, it seems like less of a paper about women's rights and more about history. Is this a good idea? Any input greatly appreciated I'm at a loss
  16. So, I want to write my extended essay about the problems with child marriage in India most likely, or some other lesser developed country that still has issues with that. But I also came across another topic that still is on the topic of human rights, where young women in Mozambique are sometimes forced to marry their rapists, and the rapists are cleared of their charges once they've tied the knot. I'm open to doing either one but I'm having a hard time choosing which would be more unique. I also am debating whether I want to take a "justification" angle on the essay or if anything else that hasn't even crossed my mind would be a good take on the essay. All help is appreciated!
  17. Is this a good research question for an essay in the human rights category? To what extent can the limited access of governmental institutions such as marriage for LGBT in Colorado be justified? or To what extent can the limited civil rights of LGBT in Colorado be justified?
  18. The article is here. What it says is that the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) has decided that sentencing offenders to life in jail will breach their human rights if they don't have at least a possibility of being released (review). No matter how heinous the crime committed, there has to be some chance for the prisoner to be released. Sound off below. EDIT: Just to be clear, they aren't being granted the right to review on the basis of new evidence or some such. No these people have confessed that they have committed these crimes, or it has been proven beyond all doubt that they have and they're not appealing this decision. The review is being given to release them on grounds of, for example, very good behaviour and if the prison psychologists believe that they can be reentered into society, or if they're terminally ill, etc. There's no question of their innocence being proven here.
  19. My topic for my EE is human rights, focusing on women's rights, so would "How does the treatment of women in (place country of choice here) conflict the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948 and how is it prolonged by internal oppression?" I'm tentatively considering Iraq, and am currently looking for articles and books on the subject. Input would be much appreciated! It may be too broad...I'm not sure. If you find any good research materials for me to consider that would be great too! I'm having trouble finding sources regarding the "self-oppression" part (meaning that the discrimination of a group is prolonged by the members of the group itself).
