International Comparative Research

Theory, methods and practice

by Linda Hantrais

In international comparative research, there is no single one best way, magic bullet or one-size-fits-all solution to the many problems encountered. This companion website is designed to guide you through the pitfalls and lead you to tried and tested good practices.

The website provides chapter-specific key resources and information to be used alongside the book, including:

  • A summary of the contents of each chapter;
  • ‘Reflective’ questions designed to accompany the subsections in the relevant chapter;
  • ‘Practical’ questions that readers planning to embark on an international research project can use as checklists to guide them through their own projects from design to implementation;
  • ‘Hot tips’ or ‘good practices’ relevant to each chapter for researchers undertaking (comparative) international research projects;
  • Supplementary information, including additional reading matter and web links, to complement the references in the book book, as well as information about training opportunities and how write up your own International Social Research Methods Case Studies.
