2013 (English)In: New Tools in Welfare Research / [ed] Brunnberg, Elinor, Cedersund, Elisabet, Uppsala: NSU-Press , 2013, 1, 9-16 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
The anthology New Tools in Welfare Research presents various tools for qualitative and quantitative research on welfare, building on both new and established theoretical perspectives and research methods. The contributions were developed within the framework of the Nordic Summer University, and were thus influenced by different research traditions at colleges and universities in the Nordic countries.
Research tools that get people involved are described; people's own statements and experiences are utilized and interpreted on the basis of established theoretical perspectives such as phenomenology, hermeneutics, and interactionism. The research approaches presented enable people of different ages to participate in formulating the image of their living conditions. This can be done together with children, adults, or old people in different life situations. It is also shown that comparative approaches may offer new insight into the various dimensions of the welfare system as a cultural practice.
