Speaking Topics
  • Western Foreign Policy

    When talking about Western foreign policy, I can outline the key tenants of Western foreign policy towards the developing world, such as democracy, human rights, economic stability, and unilateral action/intervention. Additionally, I can cover various controversies, such as the use of military force or the idea of responsibility to protect. I will also explain how Western foreign policy has evolved over time and the current challenges facing it.

  • Humanitarianism & International Development

    Both areas are two topics that are intertwined. When discussing humanitarianism and international development I will consider both the short-term relief activities as well as efforts to address the underlying causes of poverty and inequality. For example, providing food and medicine to a community in crisis can produce immediate, tangible improvements, but it does not necessarily address the long-term structural issues that created the crisis in the first place or why nations become foreign aid dependant.. To truly create lasting change, a comprehensive strategy for developing a country's infrastructure, agricultural system, educational opportunities, and social safety nets must be addressed. "

  • Women's Rights and Gender Equality

    This is one of the most pressing issues of our time. I will consider the progress that has been made in recent years and the challenges that continue to hinder complete gender equality, particularly extremist groups such as the Taliban.

  • Refugee: Current state of refugee affairs globally, post Ukraine Crisis and NATO withdrawal from Afghanistan.

    I can set out the basic infrastructure in place for a nation's refugee policy and how it affects those residing in the country as well as refugees seeking asylum. I can also discuss potential solutions to the issues surrounding refugees. It is also important to recognize the human element of refugee affairs. As a former refugee myself. I can talk about the hardships and struggles faced by those attempting to find safety and security from war-torn countries and describe the physical and emotional impact of the refugee crisis. Talk about their experiences and the courage it takes to relocate and restart a life under difficult circumstances.

    1. Intersectionality
    2. Immigration and minority rights
    3. Race and mental health
    4. Systemic racism
