Vulnerabilities of the Estranged Researcher and Researched
In this paper, I reflect upon my own experiences of conducting interpretive consumer research on sensitized topics and demonstrate how international relations (at a macro level) influence the research environment (at a very micro level). I demonstrate how the West’s insistence on enforcing a Western model of democracy onto the country can cause a series of problems for Iranian social scientists. Then, with a particular focus on the ethical and emotional vulnerability of the researcher, I argue that such difficulties ultimately hinder the great potential of consumer research in providing direction for social policy.
