Research Design Seminar

Given the increasingly inter-connected and complex world we live in, most policy challenges can no longer be sufficiently addressed through a narrow, singular disciplinary lens. This course, primarily aimed at doctoral-level research students, adopts an inter-disciplinary perspective. The focus is not on description or narrative but rather to demonstrate to students how different disciplines identify research questions/shape hypotheses/and deploy appropriate research methods to answering those questions. It will also introduce students to the skills required in academic thesis writing at the doctoral level. A series of case study examples will be used to generate research questions and methods. For instance, how might economists and political scientists/IR address the issue of inequality, promoting economic growth, and global redistributive justice in developing countries? What theories and methods exist in each discipline? How differently do they frame research questions? What key skills are required for successful academic thesis writing?

授業計画
Week 1 Introduction and Class Administration PART I Weeks 2-7: 6 topics and examples will be identified and selected in consultation with students, based on their profiles, research backgrounds and interests. Students will be asked to make presentations on their chosen topics and the nature of research design. These will allow instructors to highlight research questions and hypotheses generated from both Economics and Politics/International Relations (IR) backgrounds. PART II Weeks 8-10: Drawing from the topics and research questions generated in the earlier part of the course, this section includes two general introductory sessions on methods from Economics and Political science/IR that each discipline deploys such as field interviews; surveys; case studies or statistical analysis and regression models. Students will be tasked to see how both disciplines adopt or prefer different methods and for what reasons. An invited session may be organized by specialist academics on issues such as safety in the field and ethics of data collection and protection. PART III Week 11-13: Student Presentations. This last component will invite students to present and reflect on how the preceding sessions had affected the way they design their thesis. They will be asked to be specific in thinking about their research methods as well as their research questions. This component also allows for more peer-to-peer learning and questioning as well as input and suggestions from faculty on student research design.
