Research Methods for Studies in International Relations
To study international relations is to study social facts: trying to describe, interpret and compare these facts inevitably means that the researcher has to choose methods and tools with which to do this. Whilst there are numerous works which approach international relations from a theoretical standpoint, paradoxically there are far fewer which address the various ways to approach empirical research.
This book includes contributions from twenty or so researchers and teachers and suggests a wide range of useful data, resources, and methods for undertaking methodologically rigorous research on international relations. It contains critical reflections on how to construct and make use of databases, how to conduct interviews, how to map results, how to analyse speech and images, and how to use various quantitative methods.
A practical handbook for researchers, this book will also be valuable to a wider audience which is interested in studies of international relations and wonders quite properly how 'experts' reach their conclusions.
With a PhD in political science (international relations), Mélanie Albaret is a lecturer in political science at the Université Clermont-Auvergne. Her research focuses on international organizations, in particular the UN, and on multilateralism.
