This guide addresses qualitative data anonymisation from a theoretical, legal and practical perspective. After defining qualitative data anonymisation and addressing some common forms of resistance when it comes to anonymising such data, this guide presents the main anonymisation techniques. It argues for a layered approach and encourages the reader to consider anonymisation as an important layer of protection amongst others.
