Book launch: Mixed Methods Research in Poverty and Vulnerability. Sharing ideas and learning lessons

Wednesday 14 October 2015 13:00 to 14:30
IDS, Convening Space

The added value of mixed methods research in poverty and vulnerability is now widely recognised. However, despite the expanding volume of literature on the use of mixed methods, gaps and challenges still remain.

This edited volume focuses on issues of credibility, usability and complexity, considering how mixed methods approaches can better respond to these issues so as to make research more credible, usable and responsive to complexity. The contributors share experiences and lessons learned from research in developed and developing country contexts in respect of mixed methods in poverty measurement, evaluation research and the translation from research to policy.

Panel discussion with Laura Camfield (UEA), Fiona Remnant (University of Bath), Stephen Devereux (IDS) and Keetie Roelen (IDS)
