Mixed methods

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The objects of inquiry in deliberative democracy are multifaceted and often require methodological approaches that can grapple with complexity. This chapter argues that mixed methods are particularly well-suited to investigate deliberation, while noting advantages and limitations of this approach. The chapter reviews methodological foundations and outlines questions and puzzles where mixed methods can contribute to deliberative scholarship. It also covers research design, data generation, analysis and quality standards, while offering examples and concluding with a call to strengthen the mixed methods community of practice within the deliberative community of inquiry.
