Introduction To Research Methodologies, Professor Issam A.W. Mohamed Jun 2007

Introduction To Research Methodologies, Professor Issam A.W. Mohamed

Professor Issam A.W. Mohamed

In this book, I introduce basics of research methodologies in Arabic language which I believe is an unprecedented step. The conceptions, research frameworks, sampling and some detailed methods are given in this text book. Moreover, some analytical statistical methods are introduced to give insights to researchers. Methods of writing the scientific reports and papers in addition to documentation of references and classifying the required logical process of a thesis are detailed in this text. I introduce this book that was published by the Africa International University in Khartoum, Sudan for the purpose of helping sub and post graduate university students ...


If You Teach A (Wo)Man To Fish: An Interdisciplinary Approach To Poverty Alleviation And Women's Empowerment Through The Integration Of Literacy And Microfinance, Ceri Howes Jan 2007

If You Teach A (Wo)Man To Fish: An Interdisciplinary Approach To Poverty Alleviation And Women's Empowerment Through The Integration Of Literacy And Microfinance, Ceri Howes

Vahe Proudian Interdisciplinary Honors Program, Senior Honors Theses

Every year, over eight million people around the world die because they do not have the basic means necessary to sustain their lives. In the most fundamental of terms, poverty is the inherent absence of power within the community that is subject to such conditions. Poverty is far reaching and complex, and takes place at the global, national, local, and individual levels in a variety of forms. Therefore, if poverty is the absence of power, tools for alleviating poverty must be tools of empowerment, they must be methods for promoting independence and social justice, and they must establish a dialogue ...


To Outsource Or Not To Outsource In An Integrated World, E. Kwan Choi Jan 2007

To Outsource Or Not To Outsource In An Integrated World, E. Kwan Choi

Economics Publications

This paper investigates outsourcing decision under certainty and uncertainty. When the production activity can be fragmented into two or more processes, an integrated firm must be competitive in each of the fragmented processes. There are gains from outsourcing when factor prices differ between countries. When factor prices are not equalized internationally, a firm may outsource the process which uses its scarce source intensively. If the cost of outsourcing is lower in the foreign country, full outsourcing occurs under certainty. However, even if the outside supplier has a cost advantage, uncertainty in outsourcing cost ensures that partial outsourcing is optimal for ...


Vessel Decommissioning In Danish Fisheries, Erik Lindebo, Niels Vestergaard Dec 2006

Vessel Decommissioning In Danish Fisheries, Erik Lindebo, Niels Vestergaard

Niels Vestergaard

The fishing capacity issue has lately received considerable global attention. The application of an embracing structural policy in the European Union (EU) during the 1980s and 90s has indicated the desire of fisheries managers and administrators to rebalance the level of capacity of fishing fleets with resource availability. A previous study is drawn upon to shed light on the impact of vessel decommissioning on the Danish fleet during 1987-93. The Danish administration has since continued to structurally adjust the national fishing fleet under the guidance of the EU structural policy framework. The official capacity figures corresponding to EU multiannual guidance ...


Revenue-Based Capacity Utilisation Measures And Decomposition: The Case Of Danish North Sea Trawlers, Erik Lindebo, Ayoe Hoff, Niels Vestergaard Dec 2006

Revenue-Based Capacity Utilisation Measures And Decomposition: The Case Of Danish North Sea Trawlers, Erik Lindebo, Ayoe Hoff, Niels Vestergaard

Niels Vestergaard

In fisheries, capacity analysis has largely been limited to measuring physical capacity, defined as the maximum amount of output that can be produced per unit of time, given existing plant and equipment and unrestricted availability of variable inputs. An economic measure of capacity can be defined as the maximum revenue attainable for the given fixed inputs, using relevant outputs and output prices. This paper examines these two approaches to capacity by applying data envelopment analysis to physical and economic input/output data for Danish North Sea trawlers. The economic and physical measures are compared and contrasted using correlation analysis. An ...


Asymmetric Information And Uncertainty: The Usefulness Of Logbooks As A Regulation Measure, Niels Vestergaard, Frank Jensen Dec 2006

Asymmetric Information And Uncertainty: The Usefulness Of Logbooks As A Regulation Measure, Niels Vestergaard, Frank Jensen

Niels Vestergaard

In many fisheries managed by quota systems fishermen are required to keep a logbook containing information about catches. No well functioning enforcement system is set up in connection with the logbooks, since the purpose is to assist biologists in making stock assessments. In this paper we consider a case where three market failures (a stock externality problem, a stock uncertainty problem and problems with measuring individual catches) arise simultaneously. It is shown that a stock tax and a tax on voluntary self- reported catches may solve these three problems. By taxing voluntary self-reported catches wemake use of logbook information. It ...
