Probability and nonprobability are the two general categories of sampling. Probability
sampling uses random selection, whereas nonprobability sampling does not. For
example, if you wanted to study the effects of divorce on the psychological development
of adolescents, you could gather a population of a certain number of adolescents whose
parents were divorced. Then, out of that population, you could randomly select 25 of
those people. If you wanted to use nonprobability sampling, you would choose specific
people who had met predetermined criteria. For this Discussion, consider how samples
would be chosen for both probability and nonprobability sampling structures.
By Day 3
Post your explanation of the following:
Using your research problem and the refined question you developed in
Week 4, develop two sampling structures: probability and nonprobability.
Explain who would be included in each sample and how each sample
would be selected.
Despite the fact that African countries have both produced and hosted refugees for a long time, when the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) was created in 1963, it had limited interest in human rights other than with regards to racial discrimination and the fight for self-determination from colonial rule . In fact, the African Charter on Human and People’s Rights did not come into effect until 1986. With the exception of South Sudan, all African states have signed and ratified the Banjul Charter . Much like in the Inter-American system, the oversight and interpretation of the Charter is the task of the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights. Further instruments were adopted, most notably African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child (1990) and Protocol to the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights on the Rights of Women in Africa (2003) . In 1998, there was also a protocol to the Charter whereby an African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights was to be created. The protocol came into effect in 2004, however shortly after the recently established African Union Assembly decided that the Human Rights Court would be incorporated into the African Court of Justice. Human Rights Commissions and Courts OAS Charter conferred ACHR and ADHR competence upon the Inter-American Commission, by giving it a mandate to ‘promote the observance and protection of human rights’ . The Commission also serves as a consultative organ to the OAS on human rights matters and has ‘specific competence over matters relating to the fulfilment of obligations undertaken by states parties to all human rights conventions adopted in the regional framework’ . Its protective mandate relates to its power to examine allegations of violation of human rights standards by an OAS State and to make recommendations on the case or indeed refer the case to the Court. However, the bulk of Inter-American Commission’s work, and how it mostly gets involved with issues relating to asylum seekers and refugees, are the country and thematic reports . Unlike the Commission, the Inter-American Court of Human Rights was crea>GET ANSWER
