A Research Handbook for Patient and Public Involvement Researchers Chapter 7: Introduction to Qualitative Research Methods Helen Brooks, Penny Bee and Anne Rogers Chapter overview The term ‘qualitative research’ encompasses a wide range of different methods. What underpins these is a shared aim of understanding the meaning people attribute to experiences in their lives. It has been defined as an ‘interpretive approach concerned with understanding the meanings which people attach to actions, decisions, beliefs, values within their social world’ (Ritchie and

5 The influence of ethnomethodology on qualitative research methods As I indicated in earlier chapters, ethnomethodology arose, in large part, from Garfinkel’s concern with some fundamental methodological problems facing social science. It should not be surprising, then, that one of the fields where his work has had the greatest impact has been that of research methodology. Yet, Garfinkel himself has written very little that could be classified as falling under this heading. In the 1960s and 1970s, many sociologists – and researchers in other areas – had their

in The ethics of researching the far right
critical qualitative and ethnographic perspectives on the academies experiment

Inside the English education lab shows how critical qualitative methodologies work to illuminate and interrogate the everyday life of England’s privatised educational landscape. England has garnered a global reputation as a key proponent of education policy reforms defined by high-stakes accountability, claims of greater school autonomy and a centralised governance structure. Qualitative and ethnographic methods with their focus on practices unfolding over time and across particular situated spaces considers academisation in ways that depart from benchmarks and Ofsted ratings. The collection counters academisation’s contradictory assertion that quantitative data is the singular measure of value. The book makes a pivotal contribution to gauging some of the social and cultural effects of academisation through its reflexive focus on the practical ambiguities and incongruities that result as policy translates into practice. It explores how academisation (re)positions policies and publics through new modes of governance, it examines strategies employed by students and teachers in situ, and interrogates how institutions are being produced through space, discourse and practice. This is the first book to bring together innovative new qualitative research on academies and free schools by early career academics. The research traverses numerous geographical and social contexts within England. It provides a valuable viewpoint that reaches beyond policy claims and rhetoric by focusing on the everyday and often ambiguous practices operating within England’s rapidly academising education system.

inhabitants’ safety and reduced their possibilities of mobility. It is likely that some of the Ukrainians who came to Russia fled there ‘voluntarily’ in the context of limited choice. They may have chosen to flee to a place that was closer to their homes and that they already knew, where they spoke the language, and where they might find accommodation and support from relatives. Qualitative research is needed to understand their motivations. Moreover, we now know that depending on the time and location

I also carried out qualitative research through interviews with different protagonists: in the north-west, with members of the Union of Medical Care and Relief Organizations (UOSSM) 2 – including one of the founders – and with MSF’s Head of Emergencies in Paris when the first relief operations were put in place in 2011 and 2012, as well as with the different MSF coordinators in charge

analyses a project in a protracted emergency context of northeast Nigeria to assess if gender transformative outcomes might be occurring. Notably, this is a volatile humanitarian context, despite being protracted, wherein new, large displacements were occurring throughout the time period, including during the project implementation cycle. Using a qualitative research approach, this study sought to examine if such outcomes were emerging, despite the challenging context of not only a conflict but also a global pandemic. We find indications of changes to decision
