Zusammenfassung

Qualitative Syntheseverfahren eignen sich besonders für interdisziplinäre Forschungsthemen, wie sie in der sozialräumlichen Forschung eine lange Tradition haben. Der Beitrag beleuchtet die Metasynthese als Forschungsansatz zur Zusammenfassung, Strukturierung und Reflexion qualitativer Daten, die aus bereits durchgeführten qualitativen Fallstudien stammen. Es werden die Vorteile, aber auch die grundsätzlichen und praktischen Herausforderungen des Verfahrens anhand eines Beispiels aus der Wirtschaftsgeographie dargestellt.
