Abstract

This paper discusses the use of mixed-methods research in international trade economics. The focus of the paper is on the philosophical and procedural dilemmas faced by applied trade researchers in applying mixed-method approach instead of a quantitative only research strategy. Using the account of an illustrative study conducted earlier , this paper outlines common challenges of mixed-methods research and suggests solutions based on the pragmatist worldview of research. The challenges outlined are from the philosophical foundation, data and inference integration areas. This paper contributes to advancing mixed-methods research strategy in international trade analysis by providing an empirical legitimacy of the methodology within the field of scholarship.
