The use of mixed methods in researching poverty and vulnerability has expanded rapidly in the last few years, providing examples of best practice in data generation and analysis. The wealth of experiences with existing methods have also laid the foundation for more innovative approaches in integrating quantitative and qualitative research and frank discussion of its challenges.
The purpose of this workshop is to share ideas and experiences, learn lessons from past and on-going work and discuss work-in-progress using mixed methods research in the field of poverty and vulnerability. Its informal format will enable discussion in more detail and with more depth than is possible in other events on poverty and vulnerability. The workshop will focus on three different themes and mixed-methods research within those themes:
1. poverty measurement
2. poverty dynamics
3. impact evaluation
