Stories of change are crucial in informing our work as activists. Yet often they are too simplistic – Robin Hood-style morality tales that exclude the messiness and accident of real life.

This research guideline suggests an approach to researching and communicating case studies on change in a way that captures a broad range of the actors, power and processes involved.
