Assignment InstructionsThere are two parts to this assignment: a 5 page written literature review and an audio summary (I’ll be writing writing the audio summary portion). Each is described below. The literature review should be written in Word and uploaded as an attachment within the Assignments section of the classroom. Use 12 pt. New Roman font and double-space. Be sure to put your name and class information on the document and put your name on the file. Insert page numbers on all graduate-level work. The Literature ReviewThe purpose of this assignment is to propose a theoretical perspective that informs your research and assess the scholarly literature that has been written on your research question, including how it informs your research question and hypothesis. It should be 5 pages in length, and accompanied by an audio component (see below).Content of the literature review:The literature review should assess (1) which theoretical approach that we have covered in the course best informs your overall argument and hypothesis (e.g., socialization and interest convergence, liberal institutionalism, structural realism, feminist theory, etc.) and (2) evaluate the findings from the scholarly literature that exists on your research topic. Structure of the written literature review:The literature review is NOT an annotated bibliography. Rather, it is an analytical exercise in which you evaluate a body of literature. As such, your literature review should be organized by theme (NOT an article-by-article summary). A good literature review is a thoughtful study of what has been written, a summary of the arguments and findings that exist (whether you agree with them or not), and is arranged thematically. The literature review should be written in coherent narrative style. At the end of the evaluation, there should still be gaps in the literature that you intend to fill with your research. Here is a site explaining various ways to construct a literature review. Note that a good literature review is not a list of sources with description, but it involves synthesis and dissection of sources, with minimal use of quotes. All references must be cited in Chicago/Turabian format, which means including page numbers. The audio component:Going to complete this portion. please disregard this part.

Running head: RESEARCH PROPOSAL
International Organization Selection and Research Question
Food and Agriculture is an international organization that has been in operation for many years.
At FAO the core objective of the team in various countries is to achieve a zero hunger world.
However, little has been done to end hunger with millions starving to death in various parts of
the world and especially the Northern Africa region. This failure probes the question, what are
the hindrances that FAO encounters to lead to failure of their primary purpose? What are ways
by FAO being used to ensure that climate change is dealt with seeing it is the hugest contributor
of famine and drought? What influences has the organization has on the far stricken countries?
Conducting a study that will help address the aforementioned question would be instrumental in
aiding the organization to become more effective. Additionally, the study would be helpful for
other international organizations in evaluating their effectiveness and capability to improve.
Conducting this research study is, therefore, of great significance in the fight against world
hunger and also in the improving of other similar international organizations.
Dependent Variable Identification, Definition, and Measurement
The dependent variable for the study will be, ‘why is the food and agriculture organization
ineffective in the elimination of hunger in the world? To measure this variable reports on the
efforts that have previously been done and the ones being used now will be analyzed. Also, the
success rates in reducing hunger in various countries across the globe will be researched on, data
collected and then analyzed. These analyses will be useful in assessing and measuring the
dependent and tying it in the research.
The ineffectiveness at the food and agriculture organization could be due to the lack of
cooperation of inadequate strength in cooperation thus leading to implications such as reduced
productivity and eventual failure in the elimination of hunger.
The strength in cooperation of the nations partnered with will significantly improve the
effectiveness of FAO in fulfilling their primary purpose, ending world hunger.
Research Method and Proposed Data Sources
A literature meta-analysis of related studies and also a survey in various countries aimed at the
various concerned parties such as the employees and relaying this information via email thus
averting the costs.
