1 – Research Problem (There is not enough public knowledge about UN Peacekeeping Operations. )
2 – Theoretical and Empirical Questions:
Theoretical – How does the general public feel about the effectiveness of UN Peacekeeping Operations and how does this effect their mentality of the UN as a whole?

4 – Research Question with Multivariate and Interpretive Hypotheses:
Interpretive Hypothesis – This study considers that the general public are not very informed about UN Peacekeeping operations and do not see this as a very important issue for which they would like more knowledge.
Multivariate Hypothesis – This study considers the faculty and staff at the United Nations have a low level of awareness of UN Peacekeeping operations and do not believe such operations are important.” We want to know if they think UN Peacekeeping Operations are important.
5 – Literature Review – Look at an example of academic articles (books are fine too) along with something from a newspaper or professional reports or from an industry journal for instance. In addition to the academic articles you can have blogs, white papers, etc. However if you only have academic articles and nothing else then 4 would be a better number. You don’t need to summarize the whole article just highlight the points that are most related to your research question and/or hypotheses.
