Abstract

Having 'room to manoeuvre' is crucial if qualitative education and social researchers are to design and conduct studies effectively, efficiently and ethically. These rooms for manoeuvres also build creatively on the shifting boundaries of contemporary methodologies as well as on the evolving experiences of the researchers deploying such methodologies. This chapter outlines a rationale for reimagining rooms for methodological manoeuvres. This rationale arises from a distillation of the decision-making dilemmas presented in the preceding chapters, and also from an articulation of the proposed principles and the synthesised strategies contained in those chapters. In combination, these dilemmas, principles and strategies constitute an authentic, practical and useful encapsulation of broader implications and issues attending contemporary qualitative education and social research.
