Qualitative Methods in International Relations: A Pluralist Guide (Research Methods Series)

Author: Deepa Prakash Audie Klotz
Publisher: Palgrave MacMillan
Category: Globalization, Sociology, Social Research & Statistics, Politics & Government, Political Science & Theory, International Relations
Book Format: Paperback

We still lack practical answers to one of the most basic questions in empirical research: How should researchers interpret meanings? The contributors take seriously the goals of both post-modernist and positivist researchers, as they offer detailed guidance on how to apply specific tools of analysis and how to circumvent their inherent limitations.
