Fellow (1 September 1996 - 30 June 1997)
During my stay at NIAS my work concentrated on two topics:
Case studies constitute one of the traditional methods of research in the social and behavioral sciences, and are often contrasted with survey research in terms of an intensive versus an extensive style of research. In my book - which was published in Dutch under the title Case study's: wat, wanneer en hoe? (Amsterdam, 1997) [Case studies: What, When and How?] - several frequently discussed questions about the methodology of case studies are tackled.
The second book was planned as a first general introduction on the topic for a Dutch-speaking public of social scientists, students and staff employees engaged in or concerned with policy research. Evaluation research is momentarily perhaps the most frequently used form of research in policy domains. The focus is on cross-fertilisation of methods knowledge in different substantial fields, such as public health; employment; housing; education.
About seventy-five per cent of the book was written during my NIAS stay. I plan to finish the book at the end of 1997, and have it published in the beginning of 1998.
