    Abstract

    This chapter discusses about a qualitative approach of study of human rights. It deals with the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and illustrates the qualitative research paradigm using examples, first in terms of data-collection strategies and then in terms of analytical themes. It states the examples of how qualitative methods could be used to study and advocate human rights. In addition, it also discusses about the most common qualitative data-collection strategies. Further, the wide range of representational practices that exist under the broad umbrella of ethnography makes the research methodology particularly appealing for documenting and telling stories of rights and wrongs in innovative ways. The digital revolution will profoundly change the definition and practice of social research. Finally, It tells that it is necessary for researchers to continue to adhere to the idealistic, perhaps, interpretation of science as a quest for knowledge, irrespective of methodology.
