Geography EE on Refugees

Recommended Posts

Hi :)

For my extended essay topic I have come up with the research question:

To what extent has the resettlement of refugees in Australia been successful?

I was hoping for any feedback on the topic and whether it is too broad and ideas to refine it. I also know that for geography, primary sources are essential and was wondering if anyone had any ideas except for interviews.

Thanks in advance!

Be more specific. Refugees from what country? What type of refugee are they? Keep in mind that if this particular group of refugees has migrated to Australia within the past decade or so, you are not allowed to do your EE topic on it.

Some examples of primary sources  applicable here would be memoirs/diaries/journals/letters/autobiographies.

  because I was planning to focus mainly on Syrian refugees which is very current

From the Extended Essay guide that was released by IB:

"Essays that focus on events of the last 10 years are not acceptable, as these are regarded as current affairs, not history."

I thought that was only in regard to History extended essays?

 

I believe it would still apply, regardless of the subject. It would be best to confirm this with your IB coordinator.
