Divya Karnad Dhruv Gangadharan Arvind

Basic • Research Methods, Interview, Survey, Interdisciplinary • 30 Seats • Short • Starts at 14:00 – 16:30 on DAY 1

This workshop is intended to identify synergies between ecological and social science research, as well as to contrast the types of questions that these disciplines seek to answer. This workshop is as much about what not to use social science for, as it is about how social science can improve ecological understandings and conservation outcomes. The idea is to develop more opportunities for interdisciplinary research by introducing workshop participants to the diversity of social science research and methods.
