The name of the course is, “Terrorism: Assessing the past to Forecast the future” This is part one of a three part assignment, the second will be analytical framework and the third will be the actual research paper. I will be using this when I get the other two parts done here as well. I would like to use the same writer for all so please be prepared to do the other parts shortly after this one is done. You will also be using the same ten sources for the other parts as well, but I suppose extras wont hurt.
I chose a kind of vague topic for you to work off of here, I think that given the name of the course, we can work through how other groups have operated, and their relationships with one another peacefully and otherwise, with state support and without in order to show how they have become ISIS and where they will go next, and what we can do to defend against. Thank you for your help, I look forward to working with you mystery writer.
Assignment 1: Research Proposal
The research proposal assignment is based on a topic related to terrorism. Using a specific terrorism group is recommended as it will help you throughout all the assignments. If you have any questions on your topic, please send a message to the instructor.
The assignment calls for three sections.
1. The introduction. This section should discuss background, research question, hypothesis, and purpose. You might not have all of these elements, for example, you might not have a hypothesis, but a research question can still guide your research. The section should be about 2 pages.
2. Initial Lit Review. The lit review should have about 5 sections. A lit review intro discussing criteria for sources (include themes or variables. Use the themes/variables as subheaders to organize sources used. A lit review conclusion synthesizing the sources and identifying gaps from literature to the research question. For the initial lit review, 5-6 sources should be used. The section should be about 3-4 pages
3. Methodology. Discuss the method and type of research that will be used to collect data on the gaps discussed in the lit review conclusion. Discuss how data will be collected. Discuss how each theme/variable is evaluated or measured. The section should be about 2 pages.
