About the course
The course deepens the knowledge of qualitative social science methodology that you have acquired during Bachelor's and Master's level studies. The aim is to expand familiarity with the most common qualitative methods, further develop the ability to use the methods in qualitative research and critically assess different qualitative methods' advantages and disadvantages. The course also covers the specific challenges involved in field research and the ethical problems associated with qualitative peace and conflict research, including strategies to address those problems.
