  1. Hi there

    I arrived here by accident as I was looking for anything relating to post qualitative inquiry, which I am considering for my current doctoral studies in business ethics.

    Can you share some light on how to write a thesis using this ‘method’? I have already read a large number of articles on the topic, yet still need some clarification.

    I live in Cape Town and study through a Netherlands business school.

    Thank you
