By the end of this part, students will be able to explain basic concepts of research methodology, criticize and assess a research design of a policy paper, as well as his or her own research design.

Part three will present policy analysis process, starting from identifying/framing a policy issue to solving it. During the process, the students will learn different analytical methods (be it quantitative, qualitative or mixed), data/information sources, models and tools for constructing solution options and evaluating them and making policy recommendations accordingly. The course ends with general guidance on how to write and present an effective policy analysis, including policy research morals and discussion of instances where values and interests are in potential conflict.
