Challenges and Opportunities of International Trade and Investment
This is a group project and my part is about this:
* Theoretical Framework: Refers to previous theories, frameworks, models that you were reviewing during
literature review. Normally, a researcher will develop his or her conceptual framework underpinned on some
theoretical frameworks that s/he has reviewed. Usually, without theoretical frameworks to support your
conceptual framework, you might be exposed to questioning during article review / thesis viva examination.
Theoretical frameworks are important as they serve as lifesaver / base / float in which without them a conceptual
framework might sink miserably.
* Conceptual Framework: Is the framework that you are developing after rigorous literature review and wanted to
test the hypotheses associated with the framework. Sometimes, conceptual frameworks are also called research
models or research frameworks by different researchers/scholars or after some refinements/fine-tuning.
