This workshop aims to facilitate discussions across the qualitative/quantitative divide. As migration scholars, we often rely on survey research, be it as researchers collecting primary data or working with existing surveys conducting secondary analysis. When conducting original surveys, there is an opportunity to think reflexively about the consequences of the categories (including official categories) we are using. When engaging in secondary analysis, migration scholars must rely on the existing categories of survey-based work. However, there are often opportunities to be creative and transformative within the secondary analysis. Survey research, as any other type of research, is an art of itself. It requires pragmatism, expertise and consideration of a series of issues that arise at the various stages of survey design, implementation and data analysis. This workshop creates a space for reflexive discussion about survey research. It aims to identify and understand the challenges and opportunities of creating reflexive approaches to survey research in migration studies.
The workshop will be moderated by Justyna Salamońska (Kozmiński University) & Marta Kindler (University of Warsaw).
Attendance in the workshop is free; however, prior registration is required.
