About this book

The added value of mixed methods research in poverty and vulnerability is now widely established. Nevertheless, gaps and challenges remain. This volume shares experiences from research in developed and developing country contexts on how mixed methods approaches can make research more credible, usable and responsive to complexity.

Reviews

'This timely and empirically rich volume adds to the growing chorus of voices in favour of mixed method research on poverty and vulnerability. The authors add new elements to the existing literature, neatly framed in terms of 'credibility, complexity and usability', and make a compelling case for the value-added of such approaches. This book should be consulted widely by academics, development practitioners and policy makers engaged with these issues.'

Paul Schaffer, Trent University, Canada

'Growing numbers of researchers believe that well-designed, mixed methods studies are an effective means for analysing and understanding poverty, vulnerability and well-being. This important new book moves beyond advocacy and provides detailed case studies and examinations of 'how' to combine and integrate methods. Essential reading for academic and policy researchers striving to fit their methodological choices to their objectives and research settings.'

David Hulme, University of Manchester, UK
