Constructing coherence: doing research on the impact of AIDS - post modernism or eclecticism?

T. Barnett, Piers Blaikie

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Attempts to analyse the concepts and frameworks employed when undertaking a particular piece of research (in this case Barnett & Blaikie's 1992 work on the impact of AIDS in Uganda). Their attempt to produce a "coherent story' and the role of theory in this process is discussed. After an introduction, the first section briefly outlines the broad research problem; the following sections show the way in which the authors interpreted the data.
