Qualitative and Participatory Research

What are they? What role do they play in Quantitative Research? How valid are they?

qualitative research examples
Qualitative Research Examples
  • (Participant) Observation
  • Unstructured Interviewing
  • Oral testimony/history
  • Conversation and interactional analysis
  • Case Studies
  • Focus group discussions
  • Citizen’s Juries and Deliberative Democracy
qualitative research epistemologies
Qualitative Research Epistemologies
  • Naturalism
    • Undertakes research in the context of everyday behaviour
  • Ethnomethodolgy
    • Seeks to understand the “emic” world in its own terms
      • An "emic" account of behavior is a description of behavior in terms meaningful (consciously or unconsciously) to the actor or actress. An "etic" account is a description of a behavior in terms familiar to the observer
  • Emotionalism
    • Seeks to gain access to the inner/emotional world
  • Postmodernism
    • Critically discusses the expressions of life (deconstructs texts)

Ladders of participation:

slide10

Ladder of participation:

increasing participation

problems in action and participatory research
Problems in Action and Participatory Research
  • Sample self-selection
    • the sad, the bad and the mad
  • Agenda Capture
    • Action
    • Research
  • Elite capture
  • Mutedness of marginal groups
  • Who controls the facilitators (guardians?)
  • Routinisation
ethical issues in qualitative research
Ethical Issues in Qualitative Research
  • Who speaks for the other
    • Reflexivity
      • To “objects/subjects”
      • To peers
      • To the moral (and academic) community
  • Confidentiality and Informed Consent
    • Covert observation
      • Observation alters behaviour
        • Getting below the surface involves imposing external views
  • Triangulation

validity in qualitative research
Validity in Qualitative Research
  • Internal (reliability and validity)
    • Inter-observer agreement
      • External and internal observers
    • Correspondence of observations/records/texts with concepts
      • What is the test of correspondence?
  • External validity
    • Standard criticism of ethnography – “my village” - not replicable
    • Explanatory constructs and generalisability
    • Generalise through quantitative research
combinations and complementarities between qualitative and quantitative research
Combinations and complementarities between Qualitative and Quantitative Research
  • Multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary research
  • “Q-squared

  • Sequential and mixed inter-disciplinarity?
