Analyzing High-Profile Panel Discussion on Global Health: An Exploration with MAXQDA

Faith Hatani


This article explores the potential of open-access videos available on the Internet as a data source to identify key areas in a rather broad topic in an international context. In order to understand the latest trends relating to a global issue, the study focuses on "global health," which is a growing interdisciplinary concept across health studies, international management and public policy research. By focusing on a video of a high-profile panel discussion in particular, the study also exemplifies main features of MAXQDA to assess the dialogues made by different speakers in the video. In doing so, the article considers key aspects related to the use of the existing videos and the nature of panel discussion, and how a combination of online videos and CAQDAS can pave the way for further research.
