CANCELLED: Working With Vulnerable Groups in Quantitative Research

27 April 2020, 12:00 - 14:00

Seminar Room SG2, Alison Richard Building, 7 West Road, Cambridge, CB3 9DT

This session has been cancelled due to the lockdown. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.


Quantitative research methods are often considered incompatible with the need to explore issues of vulnerability, marginalisation and power in all their complexities. At the same time, quantitative data remains central in policy making and advocacy on behalf of marginalised groups. In this reading group session, we will explore these tensions. Researchers using quantitative or mixed methods are warmly invited to join us and share their experience in trying to capture complexity and adopt a critical stance in their work.
