- This case study aims to introduce students to the methods and the practice of documentary research, particularly in examining documentation pertaining to a national process (in this case the budget of a developing country) to identify innovations that could meaningfully address its procedural or institutional gaps. It does so while highlighting the fact that documentary research is a core element in much social research, and yet this approach is not given sufficient credit when compared with other qualitative research methods. Using documentation from the Republic of Fiji, including constitutional documents (current and prior) as well as previous budgets, the case shows how documentary research can be deployed toward solving extant practitioner problems. In this manner, it also visits the challenges that documentary research presents and delineates some ways in which these may be addressed.
