Case study uses a focus on a single person, incident, or phenomenon to examine a theoretical issue in-depth, offering a holistic analysis which may employ diverse methods of data collection and analysis. This entry discusses some of the arguments which have been posed for and against case study inquiry, in particular looking at the issue of generalisation. The construction of the case study is also discussed, with a principal distinction being drawn between two parts of the case study: 1 the subject of the study, which is the case itself, and 2 the object, which is the analytical frame or theory which the subject illuminates and explicates.
