Your objective should be to explore the problem you’ve chosen, grounding your discussion explicitly in the readings. You do not need to stick to any one reading?but do stick to your chosen theme, without too much digression (focus!). You may also relate your discussion to migration issues in the media or current events, but you still need to ground it explicitly in the readings.
