Lesson 2. Quantitative methods vs. qualitative methods + Assignment

This video introduces qualitative methods. When are they useful? For what purposes? What do they consist of? The video also introduces the notion of legal pluralism. The video contains an assignment which requires you to apply qualitative methods to exploit the semi-structured interview of a mukhtar. This interview is played by an amateur actor in this video. He speaks about a fictitious case but every element of that case is drawn from a variety of real case studies. The actor speaks Arabic with an Egyptian accent. If you prefer another language, a transcript of this interview in English is available here. The assignment needs to be submitted on this page before Wednesday 21 April, 6 PM CEST.
