This concluding chapter recapitulates the aim of the book: considering the possibilities that are available in conducting qualitative research. In this regard, the versatility and strength of semi-structured interview can allow for an exploration of specific dimensions of the research question. The interview is instrumental in creating openings for a narrative to unfold, while also including questions informed by theory. As such, this method is particularly suited to assist researchers in attending to the depth and complexity of their data. In addition to serving as a resource for research endeavor, the book hopes to inspire to researchers to take seriously the nagging questions, about the underexplored dimension of pervasive social problems.
