For most research projects the data collection phase feels like the most important part. However, you should avoid jumping straight into this phase until you have adequately defined your research problem, and the extent and limitations of your research. If you are too hasty you risk collecting data that you will not be able to use.
However, it may be seen that the stay de facto risked at least a standard breach in the Italian court. The Italian courts have been held in breach of Article 6 a staggering number of times because of unreasonable slowness. The existence of these breaches amounted to a practice incompatible with the ECHR and produced the notoriety of the Italian legal system as “the land that time forgot.” Indeed, the practice of seising the Italian courts first by way of negative declaration has become known as instituting an “Italian torpedo,” which may succeed in delaying proceedings substantially even where the Italian courts have no jurisdiction.
In this chapter, you need to justify why you chose certain methods of enquiry, and why your methods are capable of answering your research questions. For this justification you may have to link back to the Literature Review (for instance by saying that previous quantitative research did not find in-depth explanations, and therefore you are choosing different methods, such as interviews).
In addition to the choice of methods, you have to discuss the following issues in this chapter:
Advocate General Léger has suggested explicitly that the forum non conveniens doctrine, as operating under this Spiliada test, may be incompatible with Article 6, given that the steps involved for the claimant in its application “have a cost and are likely considerably to prolong the time spent in the conduct of proceedings before the claimant finally has his case heard.” Although the UK courts have never discussed this proposition, there is a potential that forum non conveniens is indeed incompatible with the reasonable time requirement in Article 6.

68. If you prepared a comprehensive proposal you will now be rewarded! Pull out the proposal and begin by checking your proposed research methodology. Change the tense from future tense to past tense and then make any additions or changes so that the methodology section truly reflects what you did. You have now been able to change sections from the proposal to sections for the dissertation. Move on to the Statement of the Problem and the Literature Review in the same manner.

87. Oh, I almost forgot. There's one last thing. Get busy and prepare an article or paper that shares the outcomes of your research. There will be no better time to do this than now. Directly after your defense is when you know your study the best and you will be in the best position to put your thinking on paper. If you put this writing task off it will probably never get done. Capitalize on all of the investment you have made in your research and reap some additional benefit - start writing.
In Lubbe v Cape Industries Plc, the defendant asked for a stay of proceedings. After identifying South Africa as the natural forum, the Court was faced with the argument that the stay would breach Article 6 because the complexity of the case and lack of funding were such that the claimant could not sue in that foreign court.
In your Masters programme, you will have to write assignments for most modules, as well as a dissertation of 65,555 words at the end. The type of writing that is required at Masters degree level in the Social Sciences may be different from the writing you have done either professionally, or in a previous degree course. These guidelines offer information on the characteristics of academic writing in the Social Sciences.
In writing a dissertation, doctoral students must grasp the concept of complete alignment to address the chosen topic. Alignment of the study begins with the identification of a problem worthy of doctoral research, followed by the stated purpose of the study, research question(s), and hypotheses (quantitative and mixed methods studies). The problem and purpose statements, research question(s), and hypotheses serve as the foundation for the remainder of the dissertation content. Including subject matter that does not directly link to these foundational elements of the research serves to distract from concentrating on the problem under study.
In this chapter you answer your research questions through presenting and discussing your results. Your discussion should link to the Literature Review and the Methodology chapter, as you are relating your own findings to the results of previous research, and to the way it was conducted.
Coherence can also be achieved by pronouns, referring to previous statements (it, they, this, these, those…). The linking words and phrases are also called cohesive devices or discourse markers. They show the reader how you move from one point to another and develop your argument.
7. Write down your ideas. This will allow you to revisit an idea later on. Or, you can modify and change an idea. If you don't write your ideas they tend to be in a continual state of change and you will probably have the feeling that you're not going anywhere. What a great feeling it is to be able to sit down and scan the many ideas you have been thinking about, if they're written down.
