Methods (examples) :
The course provides an introduction to research methods in conducting research, both qualitative and quantitative, with marginal, hidden and excluded populations. The course introduces the main theories and research approaches on hard-to-reach and excluded populations using different frameworks and techniques. The course will provide tools to address key issues such as the lack of known sampling frame; the difficulties in reaching the target group; the concepts of impact, attribution and contribution; and the political dimension of research findings. The course explores topics such as: estimation and sampling techniques; participatory research; evidence-based policy versus policy-based evidence; innovation, crowdsourcing and the use of technology; the art of combining qualitative and quantitative methods; and ethical considerations arising when conducting research with hidden and marginalized populations.
Course Objectives: The course aims to enable participants to undertake empirical research with marginal, hidden and excluded populations, and seeks to encourage participants to develop methodological strategies for the collection and analysis of such data. This entails using several data-gathering and analytic strategies, and knowing the ethical considerations to be taken into account.
