The indirect approach: the basics, the craft and the ethics

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingContribution to book/anthologyResearch


From a both theoretical and practical outset, this
chapter discusses how the research methodology
behind MaCE, The Indirect Approach is realised and
applied. This chapter also touches upon some of the
ethical implications of applying the approach in
research. The aim of this chapter is to add some
empirical experiences to the initial framework of the
approach, by exploring the practical craftsmanship
behind the idea of getting answers to questions that
you in fact do not ask.
