Many of you have broad ideas but the ideas are usually not specific enough to make a good presentation (Just comparing the GDP of two countries is not sufficient to earn a good grade). A good presentation has a clear hypothesis and message. For example, in the tourism sample project, the hypothesis is that Mediterranean countries have a large tourism industry because of the attractive weather and becahes. The slides then show that this is indeed the case. And the supplementary paragraphs will explain the slides in more detail and show how they support (or, contradict) the hypothesis.
The topics can be of any area of your interest (e.g. education, gender, inequality, environment, trade, political economy...etc). As long as they are relevant to Middle East, and your hypothesis is reasonable, it will be considered as a good presentation.
As in the sample project, you should have 5-6 slides and supplementary notes. The supplementary notes should be 1-2 paragraphs long and please write it on a separate word document (instead of on the slides).
