Transformation as a Goal of Mixed Methods Research in the Caribbean

The world is facing many challenges related to economic, environmental and social injustices. Trinidad and the wider Caribbean experience the effects of these challenges in the form of climate change, violence and economic downturns. Researchers who value the use of their work for social transformation can contribute to the solutions to these challenges by critically examining who needs to be involved in the research and the best ways to involve them. The country and cultural contexts are critical to designing, conducting and using research to achieve the goal of social transformation in the form of improved quality of life in Trinidad and the wider Caribbean. I explore the application of transformative mixed methods designs that are specifically focused on the use of research as a tool to support social transformation in the West Indies. Examples of transformative mixed methods come from West Indies scholars.
