As an emerging field of inquiry, research into democratic innovation has tended to reproduce the methodological approaches prevalent in the disciplines it draws on. As a result, the use of mixed methods has been rather limited, despite its potential contribution to address the multidimensional lines of inquiry that typically occupy scholars of democratic innovation. This chapter offers an introduction to mixed methods research, including basic concepts and philosophical foundations, as well as an overview of key considerations about research design and analysis. It also includes examples of mixed methods research deployed to study democratic innovation, highlighting the benefits and challenges of this approach to social and political inquiry.
