This chapter introduces the purpose, audience, structure and content of the 22 chapter edited volume, Handbook of Research Methods on Diversity Management, Equality and Inclusion at Work. It gives a short overview of EDI research and discourses, and concludes that common qualitative and quantitative research approaches fall far short of addressing the challenges of EDI research and have to be re-visited and even reinvented to further explain the complex processes of EDI. This Handbook addresses the aforementioned gap, represents the distillation of knowledge of the empirical EDI discourse and aims to become a benchmark volume that synthesises existing EDI literature, helping to define and shape the present and future EDI research and discourse. This Handbook is organised into three parts, ‘Part I Research dilemmas in EDI’, ‘Part II Methodology and methods for collecting EDI material’ and ‘Part III Methods and techniques for EDI data analysis’.
