HL Case Studies

All global politics students (SL and HL) study four compulsory units:

  • Power, Sovereignty and International Relations

  • Peace and Conflict

  • Human Rights

  • Development


In addition, HL students explore case studies in the following topics: 

  • Environment

  • Poverty

  • Health

  • Identity

  • Borders

  • Security


  • Through a case studies approach, HL students examine and evaluate two global political challenges (in two different topics) and do two presentations on these.
