Panel data, Interview and Field data
Reason: 1. The dataset includes interviews and fieldwork interactions with diplomats and government officials on foreign policymaking on education and cultural affairs. Interviewees do not want those information to be seen by the public. 3. Some of the quantitative data were obtained only for this specific research. I do not have the right to make it public.
