Research Question and Hypothesis Exercise.

Research Topic: Are states behaving in a predictable, non-arbitrary fashion when using Drones in a war on individual targeted strikes? Is there a legal use or a misuse of the international Law and violation of humans rights?

1. Start your assignment with an introductory paragraph about your research topic and why it is of interest and a research “puzzle.” You want to guide your reader from your research area to your research topic, then on to your general research question, and specific research question.

While there are many ways to frame a research question, at the graduate level, your research questions should be 1) open-ended and start with “How,” “Why,” “What,” or “To what extent;” 2) should incorporate the variables you seek to assess and their relationship; and 3) should indicate how you intend to test the nature of that relationship.You want to make sure that your question has an appropriate amount of complexity so that it requires a significant amount of research and analysis. A simple Google search should not be able to answer your research question.

Appropriately Complex and Focused: To what extent is Hillary Clinton motivated by a need for power by comparison to Bill Clinton, and how might this impact access and control of information within the White House?

2. Next, provide a purpose statement that conveys your intentions about what you hope to produce. See the reference in your Lessons and review that it will usually be prefaced by some phrase like the following: “This paper examines . . .,” “The aim of this paper is to . . .,” or “The purpose of this essay is to . . .”.

Your purpose statement should demonstrate what you are hoping to find out, and also explain what you want your readers to understand (motivation or argument of the research).

I am studying…

(Narrowed Topic)

…because I want to find out…

(Research Question)

….so that readers understand…

(Motivation or Argument)

3. Pull out the dependent (DV) and independent variable(s) (IV) that you are interesting it looking at.This needs to be specific and you need to discuss ideas for how you might go about measuring the impact that the IV as on the DV.You need to focus in on one or two specific variables (and discuss how they are defined), otherwise your research will quickly spin out of control as you will not have the capacity to effectively address the relationship between all the variables.The PRS Group offers a good list of variables they use in their research.This list is just an example of variable to show you what a variable might look like and how it might be defined.

From here develop a hypothesis that reflects your educated guess as to the relationship between those variables. You may use an “if” “then” statement or you may formulate it as a narrative statement.

Hypothesis:A statement for how a change or condition in one or more independent variables cause(s) a change or condition in a dependent variable.

Finally, explain why these are the important variables to look at within this research project.Why focus on these variables and not other variables?

By the time you are done you should have at least 3-4 pages of content (double spaced in times-new roman font), not including the title page, and a “references list or bibliography” page. Your writing should be consistent with the professional/academic writing style.For a refresher on the conventions of academic writing please refer to the latest Turabian writing guide or APA writing manual. Since multiple writing styles are in use within this course, on your title page, please note which style you are using within your assignment.This will help me cater my comments to the style you are using.The style you use need to be the one that is used within your program of study.

Mostly in the venture of seeking justice, we find that most of the crimes that people commit are typically punished by the law and by the justice system. However, many are the times the authorities tend to classify some criminals to be highly dangerous, and they, therefore, issue warrants of arrests or shoot to kill basis. The purpose of this as they claim is to enable them to prevent loss of lives of the soldiers when they happen to engage in a confrontation.
