Handbook of Research Methods in Diversity Management, Equality and Inclusion at Work

Edited by Lize A.E. Booysen, Regine Bendl and Judith K. Pringle

Equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) have become features of organizations as a result of both legal and societal advances, as well as neoliberal economic reasoning and considerations. Current research approaches frequently fall short of addressing the challenges faced in EDI research, and this benchmark Handbook brings up to date coverage of research methods in EDI, and advances the development of research in the field.

Chapter 6: Comparative and multi-country research in equality, diversity and inclusion

Eddy S. Ng and Alain Klarsfeld


Globalization and increasing diversity around the world have spawned expanding comparative research on equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI). Comparative and multi-country EDI research can assist with construct development and theory testing, informing best practices, development of an index, typology or continuum, and identifying patterns and trends. Drawing from our collective experiences, we discuss the purpose, types and methodological issues related to comparative and multi-country EDI work. We also offer suggestions on emerging topics on EDI and the appropriate methodologies to undertake multi-country research. We note that comparative research work on EDI can be challenging and rewarding, also more importantly, it can lead to interesting findings and ground-breaking discoveries.
