List of topics

The major research paper will be about a political change - an instance in which a country or region changed from one form of government to another form. Your question will be: how and why did the change occur? In your completed project, you will describe the systems of government before and after the change, describe the process of change, and explain why the change happened when it did. You will consider alternate explanations and use logic and evidence to support your argument.
