Research Methods in Dispute Resolution

This course meets with three primary objectives. First, it provides students with a basic "literacy" in research methods, enabling them to be critical consumers of literature reporting research findings. Students will learn the fundamentals of sound research design, inference from data to conclusions, and the assumptions underlying various methods. Second, it introduces students to the role and use of research methods in conflict intervention work. And third, it provides students preparing to undertake the Master's Project an introduction to the types of research methodology that they are most likely to use in their MPs.
