Courtney Paisley. (8/8/2016). Proposed methodology.
The document provides a detailed description of used methodology. We have foreseen to apply both quantitative-qualitative research methods. However, given the scope of the study, the major focus will be on a qualitative approach, as we need to provide knowledge and understanding of the phenomenon under study, and understand the reasons behind the choices and aspirations of rural youth. Besides, due to the heterogeneity of youth, (youth are members of families, households and societies, and are therefore embedded in social relations) a more narrative/qualitative approach would bring out more interesting stories and would better be able to describe youth’s aspirations for example.
