Anthrologica forms dynamic teams that best fit the needs of our clients on a project per project basis.
The methodologies we use are designed to be relevant and proportional to the scope of the work, to be flexible and to correspond with continuing development and good practice.
Our approach is built upon rigorous qualitative methods. We employ a combination of tools including in-depth interviews with key informants, focus group discussions, narratives and case studies, observation, creative workshops and participatory approaches. We also use mixed-methods, integrating qualitative and quantitative research. Open inductive techniques ensure that our analysis remains grounded and provides insight at community-, institutional- and policy-levels, enabling us to make strategic recommendations. Our fieldwork design allows us to work in complex operating environments with positive collaboration between international and national researchers.
Anthrologica advocates a human rights approach and we adhere to the highest ethical standards. Our work is guided by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the UN General Comment on the Right to Health and the Code of Conduct for the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement and NGOs in Disaster Relief.
