Does state sovereignty adequately fulfil the right of all peoples to self-determination in contemporary international politics?
Identify the key words of the question/title and use them to map out your essay content in terms of the issues/themes that you will need to address and what sort of response is required.
Therefore, at a bare minimum, you are going to need to:
• Show your understanding of the concepts and practices of self-determination and sovereignty
• Define what is necessary for self-determination and discuss whether
contemporary states effectively deliver this for all peoples
• Support your argument (i.e. present empirical examples and demonstrate how they help support your argument);
• Write a clear conclusion that pulls together the points you have made in the essay and provides your final answer to the question.
