Speaker:  Graciela Tonon

11 am Buenos Aires and Porto Alegre, 10 am New York, 3 pm London, 8.30 pm New Delhi

The decision to use a certain research methodology implies a philosophical, theoretical, political, and operational decision. Mixed-methods are a methodological strategy to complement and expand the combination of the quantitative and qualitative methods in which researchers can combine both at different stages of the project. In this sense, it is important to reflect on the use of mixed methods for the study of capabilities.
