Research Skills for Policy and Development
How to Find Out Fast
- Alan Thomas - University of Wales, Swansea, UK
- Giles Mohan - The Open University
The successor to Finding Out Fast (SAGE, 1998) it reflects the changes in development management theories and practice over the last seven years, and includes new material and advice on critical use of the web as a resource and research tool. It is essential reading for development managers in NGOs and public sector agencies as well as students of development management and development studies more generally.
As a guide, Research Skills for Policy Development offers a breadth of knowledge and depth which is essential for students to develop a greater understanding of the key themes and issues associated with research outside of academia for practitioners and students of management and the public sector.
An interesting and engaging book that I think will help students undertaking development research in short timescales
