The study is a cause-and-effect analysis on election-related violence in Nueva Ecija. It seeks to explain the situation of election-related violence in the said province by adopting a action research that looks into its causes and implications, as well as the definitions and types of election-related violence that are present in the province.

The study employs three analytical perspectives, namely: (1) power analysis, (2) institutional analysis and (3) socio-cultural analysis. By using a cause-and-effect analysis, this research was able to look at the problem from a broader perspective, identifying the different variables and how they are mutually reinforcing. It is however critical to limit the possible causal categories to provide depth to and emphasis of the study.
