In depth Interviews

In depth interviews provide the foundation for MAR and ICAR's groundbreaking qualitative research work, many of which are routinely and extensively cited by practitioners and policy makers.  The Cabinet Office's Council on Social Action has recently used our analysis of interview material from ongoing research on the quality of publicly funded legal advice for asylum seekers in its recent report "Time well-spent: The importance of the one-to-one relationship between advice workers and their clients" (2009).

Our specialisation in issues of asylum and migration means that our researchers are highly competent and experienced in working across language and cultural barriers, and work with interpreters (including sign language interpreters) as standard practice.  We routinely use qualitative data analysis software as the basis for initial analysis and report writing.
