guys what are some hot current related topics for 2a this year?

Democracy(Bidens focus and freedom house report), climate change(cop26), all time fav CW2.0, iran nuke deal , WHO, plurilateralism and IPR waiver in WTO, Return of big state in pandemic times, EU SAARC , G7 cornwall consensus ?

what others?

that's pretty much it. India's term at UNSC could be A or B. Climate justice is a probable one. Not sure of G7. Maybe something of Nuclear Proliferation and IAEA maybe, was in news with respect to Iran.
