  • This book is structured in three parts. In Part I, we aim to sensitise you, the reader, to the complex issues that challenge qualitative researchers at the planning stage of their projects. In Part II, the challenge of using different methodologies in practice is critically explored by 15 authors who share their individual research experiences. Part III examines the choices we make when we evaluate and present research. We hope you will find this book both exciting and helpful. Inevitably, there are many gaps in terms of topics and issues covered, and methodologies represented.
