This study is based on a case study research approach. Gerring (2007: 37) elucidates that a case study is “an intensive study of a single unit or a small number of units (cases), for the purpose of understanding a larger class of similar units (a population of a case)”. Three major reasons led to my choice of a case study research approach. First, studying institutions as well as actor interactions, relationships, and motivations in urban land delivery is intricately intertwined with context. It also involves a complex set of both historical and contemporary events.
We have chosen to focus on the case study method because of its popularity among the disciplines that traditionally informed context-oriented research in translation studies (cultural studies, sociology, political science, anthropology, psychology), as well as because of its flexibility in terms of drawing on a wide range of sources of data. The discussion of complexity thinking and case study in this paper will focus on causality, boundary setting and researcher
Case Study This is the research strategy with the help of which the researcher can gather topic specific real life information from the online sources. It is noticed that the practices or actions that has taken place in the world in relation to the research topic are collected and presented in this research strategy. This is means that the researcher analyses the aim and objectives through utilisation of the factual information that is available on the online sources such as organisational website. It involves evaluation of the particular case or situation associated with the topic. For this study, this research strategy is used in which different cases related to transnational asset recovery are presented in the findings so that aim and objectives are discussed and concluded precisely (Blessing & Chakrabarti, 2009).
The case study in company analysis may also focus on various strategies used by the company for facing completion, to become a monopoly, for survival, and for sustainability for a long time with profit. The company performance based on company executive’s decision can be correlated with various theories of organizational behaviour and performance. Sometimes the company’s poor business performance leading to bankruptcy can be analysed and the reason for such failure can be
The case study research methodology has been selected to conduct the inquiry into this phenomenon. The case study approach was advanced by noted American University scholar-in-residence Robert K. Yin; he is renowned for his work in this area. Yin (2009) explains that this empirical inquiry facilitates exploration of a contemporary phenomenon in depth within its real-life context using a variety of data sources. He instructs that this research design should be considered when: (a) the focus of the study is to answer “how” and “why” questions; (b) you cannot manipulate the behavior of those involved in the study; (c) you want to cover contextual conditions because you believe they are relevant to the phenomenon under study; or (d) the boundaries
Synthesis-2 : Aesthetic Perspective: Role of Identity, Audience, Collectors and creators Ethnographers believe in observing the different aspects related to a region or their field of study. Once observed, the interpretations, which are solely their own, are presented to the whole world and the world interprets/sees the region through the lens provided by the ethnographers. In recent years, the tendency of ethnographers, as well as general public, to lean on such observations has been re-evaluated with the help of conversations. In this synthesis I will analyze several sources, which have discussed the importance of creating and including new perspectives into the already existing ones. Such a phenomenon not only gives way
Researchers use diverse methods to gain information for their research. Case Studies: In case studies, researchers carry out thorough analysis of unique situations, persons or groups of persons. The researcher gets to understand the subjective experience of this unique demographic. Naturalistic Observation: In naturalistic observation, the researcher makes the respondent to be comfortable so that they can behave normally during the research. Naturalistic observation mitigates fear therefore increasing the probability of aligning the actual behavior of the person with the research being performed.
Consequently, the construct validity of this test needs due attention. Although some sporadic validity investigations (Barati & Ahmadi, 2010; Razavipour, 2010; Tahmasbi & Yamini, 2012) have been conducted on the UEE test at M.A. levels, to the best knowledge of the authors, no single study about the validity of the present test has been carried out yet. According to Messick (1995), although validity is a unitary concept, six distinguishable aspects of construct validity can be highlighted as means of addressing the notion of validity as a unified concept. These six aspects of construct validity are content, substantive, structural, generalizability, external, and
The research methods employed to explore teacher’s perception on the influence of socio-economic status on the phonological awareness of students is examined in this chapter. This chapter begins with an overview of the research design including the research aim, research philosophy and time horizon of the research. Then the specific research methods employed for participant recruitment, instrument development, data collection and data analysis are discussed. This chapter will justify the use of quantitative surveys over qualitative or mixed methods. It will discuss the snowballing method used in this research for data collection and Last, it will discuss the ethical considerations and any issues that occurred throughout the research.
In a different way, Yin reminds, analysis of case study is the least advanced part in a qualitative research and much depends on the researchers own way of empirical thinking, with enough presentation of evidence and cautious consideration of alternative interpretations (Yin, 2014; p.133). The collected data from the refugees, local residents in the form of one-to-one interviews and focus group interviews will be analyzed in the form of content analysis to make interpretation out of the collected data. Besides, the researcher haven been doing a comprehensive document reviews. Additionally, the researcher is in the process of organizing the collected data, the interview will be transcribed. The researcher gathered field notes and summaries during the interviews and focus group discussions.
