WorkPackage 2 Theory and methodology



The overall objective of the work-package is to have responsibility for the theoretical coherence and methodological consistency of the research and to maintain coordinated oversight, together with the research work-package leaders, of the research activity.




The workpackage plays a central role in the analysis of the research findings and coherence of methodology, contributing to theory and method in the three main phases of the project:

  • It will develop the methodological and theoretical framework of the project, and in specific the conceptual and empirical framework for the case studies.
  • It will ensure the coherence of theory and both quantitative and qualitative research methodology of the case studies.
  • It will produce a mid-term guideline on the theoretical framework of the field studies, two final reports of global governance theory in light of the case studies, and guide for field studies of similar research focus.
