My topic is: Why do some countries have citizenship by right of blood and others by birthright “right of the soil”?
The Topic paragraph will include at least two parts:
- A brief description of some issue or aspect of politics. Explain the issue so that readers will understand why the question you pose is puzzling.
- A single specific question about the issue, ending with a question mark. The question should be about some sort of cause-and-effect relationship, as in “does x cause y?” or “does x have an effect?” or “what causes y?” In other words, the question must be empirical.
- The paragraph should end with a question mark.
