The strategic research positioning: researching ‘immigrant’ parents’ perspective of the home/school partnership

Publikation: KonferencebidragPaperForskning

It is common knowledge that in order to understand the interviewees’ perspectives in qualitative research, mutual recognition, trust and dialogue are required. But, how do we obtain that – especially - when research projects are squeezed in terms of time and resources? This was my case - when I had to provide new insights into ‘immigrant’ parents’ perspective on home/school partnership in Denmark. The majority of the immigrant parents came from non-Western countries, and they had already been ‘labelled’ difficult in terms of home/school partnership.
This calls for what I call ‘strategic research positioning’, meaning critical reflections about the relationship and power balance between the researcher and the researched. The paper focus' on challenges and dilemmas linked to this position.
