Most policy research is done using a single methodology and/or a single theoretical perspective. This chapter argues for adopting a ‘crucial multiplism’ in assessing relationships among presumed independent and dependent variables in social research in general, and especially in comparative analysis. The chapter also emphasizes the need to integrate quantitative and qualitative analyses of the same relationships in order to gain a more complete understanding of the relationships with the research field.
