The Methods for Change project arose out of recognition that the robust methodologies developed within the social sciences - qualitative, interpretive, creative - could be more widely shared with, and used by, non-academic sectors to create transformative social change. This collection focuses on a range of methods that invoke change at a variety of scales - from large scale environmental, social or economic changes through to organisational, community and personal change. You will find a unique compilation of 30 'how to' guides about innovative methodologies from across the social sciences. Each guide is led by, and based on the research of, academic colleagues working within the Aspect network institutions.
