From assignment: This will be a â€˜classicâ€™ term paper to write. I do not expect a specific number of references, but a range of 6-15 is usual â€“ more important is the quality and originality of your sources. As a general advice, try to work on something specific so that you feel is interesting, try to go beyond the â€˜usual storyâ€™ and do some interesting research (even if using secondary sources, but check if you can also access primary ones â€“ such as original documents, census, etcâ€¦ but excluding interviews as you would need to go through ethics review to do that). While being specific, try to present a general argument that helps you to frame your paper and to go beyond a descriptive case study (reading more widely and using theoretical/conceptual sources can help here). Papers are graded according to the following criteria: originality of argument(s) and case study, quality of the research/sources, structure and logic of the paper, quality of the writing.
Please choose one of the following topics:
1) Contentious politics in the early 21st century: China, Hong Kong, rule of law, and democracy
