Probably the most difficult part of the process. We have done a lot of content research and analysis of various authors and their theories. From all of the information we gathered it was challenging to make a clear and specific research question. After a lot of consideration and feedback we finally defined our project aim. The academic articles we decided to use for our project are mentioned below:
