Life history research training module available online

P4P, along with the well-known author and trainer, Professor Raewyn Connell of the University of Sydney, have developed an online training module on how to conduct life history qualitative research. This training module was compiled during a one-day clinic “Skills Building on Life History Research” held in Bangkok on 26 April, and organized by P4P. Students, researchers, and practitioners from the Asia-Pacific region took part in the clinic, which helped to enhance their skills in life history research, with an additional focus on deepening understanding of masculinities as a means of preventing GBV and promoting gender equality. The qualitative component of P4P’s multi-country research uses life history methodology to explore pathways and trajectories in men’s lives that lead towards use of violence on the one hand and non-violence and promotion of peace and equality on the other. The module includes: 1a) Uses and approaches to life history research ( 1b) How to conduct a life history case study ( 2a) How to conduct advanced life history analysis ( 2b) Doing research for practice ( 3a) Concluding Remarks ( For more information, contact
