#11 Doing Field Research
What are the ethical challenges of conducting field research in conflict-affected areas? In this episode, Prakash Bhattarai -the Founder and Executive Director of Center for Social Change- and Karen Brounéus - Associate Professor of Peace and Conflict Research at Uppsala University- talk about their experiences in the field, including in post-war Nepal, and they highlight some of the perils of doing field research. In addition, they underline the significance of creating a research culture of reflection and honesty. Sharing and learning from mistakes might be the key to building this culture, according to Bhattarai and Brounéus.
