Beyond Guidelines: The Question of Ethics in Transregional Research and Knowledge Production

Banu Karaca and Çiçek İlengiz (both Forum Transregionale Studien / BEYONDREST), Birgit Meyer (Utrecht U), Anne-Marie McManus (Forum Transregionale Studien / SYRASP)

Forum Transregionale Studien, Wallotstr. 14, 14193 Berlin



EU guidelines for the social sciences highlight the need for ethical research designs when working with human subjects, emphasizing the protection of personal data, the power asymmetries that accompany research in what (as per these guidelines) is called “resource poor settings” and – notably to a lesser extent – potential political or social risks for research interlocutors in different countries. In this workshop, the BEYONDREST working group would like to open up a conversation looking at research ethics – especially in transregional research – both in methodological and conceptual terms. Among the topics we would like to discuss are questions of disclosure and non-disclosure, the dynamics of off-the-record remarks in different institutional and political settings, and differential vulnerabilities that shape knowledge production in often unanticipated ways.
After short interventions by Birgit Meyer, Anne-Marie McManus, and the BEYONDREST team, we invite the participants to a joint reflection on their experiences – be it within fieldwork settings or during data analysis and the writing process.

The workshop is organized by the ERC-funded research project Beyond Restitution: Heritage, (Dis)Possession and the Politics of Knowledge (BEYONDREST). The workshop is open for a limited number of participants. If you would like to attend, please register at beyondrest(at)
