RE: How are mixed methods used in programme evaluation? | Eval Forward

Qualitative methods are often descriptive. Has anyone used qualitative causal inference?

The goal of qualitative causal inference is to prove cause-and-effect, either looking back into the past, or forward into the future. My sense is that this approach relies heavily on unscripted interviews, where undiscovered issues are revealed by follow-up questions. (What do you mean? Can you give an example?)
