Verhältnis der Bevölkerung zu EZA und Entwicklungshilfe
With the introduction of foreign aid and development cooperation in Austria the population's opinion on this issue was collected by using empirical social research in a number of surveys. This thesis addresses the following research question: What methods and questions were used and to what extent the opinion and attitude of the Austrian population was analyzed for the topic development aid and development cooperation using surveys from the period 1980-2012? After reviewing located surveys five
... studies were used for detailed analysis. The primary objective of this work was not to obtain the following information from the surveys or studies: hypotheses, results or analysis. That information is available in the studies themselves. This work is devoted to the methods, the questions, the scope and framework of these surveys. Needed to answer the research question, an analysis scheme was developed. There were about 40 different criteria detected for analyzing the surveys. The criteria of the analysis scheme were divided into categories for clarity. Through the creation of a table form as analysis scheme it can be used by researchers to classify surveys in the future. It was detected that the existing surveys on this subject are very different. For certain topics similarities were detected in the surveys. It can be concluded that overall these surveys are not very similar. The survey authors themselves complained about a lack of continuity. This also explains the generally low number of primary surveys and secondary analyzes on the topic "opinion about development aid and development cooperation".
