Write brief proposal on
  • What is your central question or problem?
  • Why is this problem important and worthy of
  • How will you go about it (research methods and
    underlying assumptions)?

  • Use this section to provide a setting for your
    area of research
  • Introduce your area of research, without going
    into specific details, touching upon the nuances
    of your work and the problems at hand
  • The theoretical and conceptual framework may not
    directly relate to your work but it shall provide
    an element of the foundation of your final work.

  • This section shall provide the space for an
    extensive literature review
  • It is STRONGLY recommended you avoid journalistic
    pieces when writing on your topic. You may use it
    to supplement your knowledge but it cannot be
    used in a literature review
  • Ideally a review should provide a broad spectrum
    of literature of your area of research

  • The purpose of this review is to provide the
    theoretical and conceptual framework of your
    work it will also provide a better understanding
    of the discourse and help you to come to a
    conclusion on your research topic.
  • If you choose to follow one school of thought
    over another, you must outline your
    interpretation and reasons for selecting it.
  • If you fail to carry out solid literature review,
    you may end up writing several dissertations!
    This means one dissertation with several
    disjointed arguments, each one failing to fully
    support your research
