A Conflict Sensitive Approach to Field Research

2017. Author: The Swiss Academies of Arts and Sciences

This publication applies a conflict sensitive approach to research at the conceptual level, while also introducing some examples at the practical level. The publication is split into three sections. The first addresses the “theoretical application of conflict sensitivity to field research” by providing an analytical framework for applying conflict sensitivity to field research. The second section introduces practical examples to illustrate how field research influences local contexts. The third section provides examples of how context impacts field research. The publication concludes with reflections on how to open up the prospects of a “critical” conflict sensitivity approach for researchers.
