My dissertation topic is about Free Trade Areas – advantages and disadvantages local companies, so I need a comprehensive Methodology section including:
2. Research Design, Strategy (case study) and Approach
3. Justification for using Quantitative & Qualitative methods (mixed methods)
4. Data Collection
5. Analysis Methods
6. Validity, Reliability of the Research
7. Ethics and Confidentiality
I pretend to use a mixed method, qualitative and quantitative method (but more qualitative than quantitative)
Quantitative data will be secondary data from various sources including statistical data from the government, business associations and others institutions and sources like internet.
Qualitative data will be with in-depth interviews with key players on this subject (international trade) like government officials, business association?s leaders and key company managers.
Data analyses must be by triangulation method.
