This chapter outlines the mixed-methods methodology used in the research in Uganda. It explains the original features of the research design in order to enable others to understand, adapt, and replicate this approach. The work in Uganda had a number of defining features. First, it established a sound contextual understanding of the research area, sequentially undertaking both qualitative and quantitative research, beginning with semi-structured interviews, focus groups, transect walks, and participant and non-participant observation. Second, on the basis of this in-depth understanding, a survey across the selected sites was designed and implemented based on original sampling methods, which resulted in an unprecedented dataset of over 2000 respondents. A key feature was the use of participatory research methods: the research team that was built and trained included peer researchers and enumerators from within the refugee communities. The chapter reflects on these methods and their strengths and weaknesses.
