Conference: Methodological Challenges for the Twenty First Century

Methodological Challenges for the Twenty First Century
Manchester Conference Centre, University of Manchester
22-23 November 2007.

This meeting is designed to promote discussion of a number of themes which represent continuing methodological challenges or areas where there is a lack of dialogue across disciplines or topic areas. Themes covered in the conference include research designs for policy evaluations; strategies for integrating data from mixed methods; the role of RCTs in policy evaluations; the role of genetic information for research into kin relationships; and the role of new forms of data, (transactional, surveillance, administrative) vis à vis more traditional survey data.

Attendance is free of charge, including lunch on both days and the conference dinner on Thursday evening.

As well as an opportunity to discuss future developments, the meeting also marks the final event organised by the ESRC Research Methods Programme and will be drawing on experience gained during the Programme.
