Political pressures on educational and social research: international perspectives

Trimmer, Karen, ed. (2016) Political pressures on educational and social research: international perspectives. Taylor & Francis (Routledge), Oxon, United Kingdom. ISBN 978-1-138-94712-2

Abstract

This book draws upon a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches to consider the problems that can arise when research findings diverge from political directions for policy. Chapters explore the personal impact this can have on the researchers, as well as the influence it has on the methodology, and the publication of results. The book offers innovative ways of seeing how these connect, overlap and interact, revealing particular issues of concern for researchers and evaluators. Key topics covered include the identification of research outcomes, inclusivity and voice of participants, empowerment, and the importance of research that genuinely seeks to explore and discover knowledge.
