Research Design – Theoretical Framework, Methodology and Hypotheses

  • Thomas Stephan Eder


In the following a theoretical framework for this study shall be developed. I intend to find an approach that promises to have explanatory power, in connection with basic findings concerning Chinese and Russian positions on IR and the Sino-Russian relationship in CA. After settling on a suitable combination of theories – IR theories should not be considered and generally are not considered to be mutually exclusive –, a corresponding methodology will be explained and several hypotheses posited.
