Dilemmas of Justification in the Qualitative Study of Intimate Matters: Examples from Namibia

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearch

This chapter focuses on the special obligation researchers have to consider carefully the ethical and moral aspects of their work when undertaking qualitative field research on intimate matters. The chapter argues that the term "justification" is central to a discussion of several dimensions of ethics in the various phases of research, from the conception of a research idea to the dissimination of research results.
