Case studies: City square of Cieszyn, Český Těšín and Çayyolu
Case studies are usually used to describe and diagnose single, internally complex objects: individuals, buildings, episodes, institutions, processes, and societies. In case studies investigators delineate boundaries of and object and then observe such things as the elements it comprises, relations among elements, the development of the object, and contextual influences. A case study is appropriate when researchers are interested mainly in information specific to the particular study object and context, rather than information easily generalizable to a large population.
The study objects of this thesis are three main squares in two different countries: the main square located in the city centre of Cieszyn in Poland and the main square in city of Český Těšín in the Czech Republic and Çayyolu square in Turkey.
