This international collection brings together personal accounts from researchers working in and on conflict and explores the roles of emotion, violence, uncertainty, identity, and positionality within the process of doing research, as well as the complexity of methodological choices.

It highlights the researchers’ own subjectivity and presents a nuanced view of conflict research that goes beyond the messiness inherent in the process of research in and on violence and the potential for violence of research itself. It addresses the uncomfortable spaces of conflict research and the need for reflection on these issues.
This powerful book opens up spaces for new conversations about the realities of conflict research. The critical self-reflections and honest accounts provide important insights for any scholar or practitioner working in similar environments.
