Gender, Ethics and Critique in Researching Security and Secrecy

Research output: Chapter in Book / Report / Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

• Research objective: The aim of this chapter is to offer a reflective discussion
of the gender-related opportunities and pitfalls associated with research
on security and secrecy. This chapter helps researchers who want to reflect on
questions of ethics and critique in research on security and military institutions.
• Research Puzzle: The puzzle the chapter addresses in relation to secrecy
and methods is not simply to ask questions about how gender relations can
help provide or limit access to information (although this will also be done),
but to discuss how our research encounters with security professionals are
shaped by our position as “insider”/”outsider” and by identity categories,
among them gender.
