Research output: Book/ReportBook


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 emerging from Phase 2 of Methods for Change 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. Building on the 30 'how to' guides in Phase 1 (Barron et al., 2021), in this volume, you will find a unique compilation of 17 'how to' guides about innovative methodologies from across the social sciences using creative, qualitative, mixed method, participatory, critical quantitative and spatial methods. Each guide is led by, and based on the research of, academic colleagues working within and beyond the Aspect network institutions.
