The study of political violence has blossomed over the past decade with scholars making substantive advances around an array of important subjects. These advances have relied on a variety of methodological approaches including qualitative studies that deploy archival research, interviews, ethnography, participant observation and other methods. This forum is dedicated to discussing the meaning and significance of transparency for scholars engaged in research on political violence. Of particular concern are the tradeoffs that arise between the demands for transparency and the need for sensitivity regarding research subjects in high risk locales.

This forum contains four clusters of questions that we are seeking feedback on. Please feel free to share your thoughts on any of the specific topics or via direct emails to one of the moderators. If you would like to add additional ideas that don't fit any of the four clusters below, feel free to add them in this topic. We thank you in advance for your thoughtful feedback.
