Abstract:

When actions are under the influence of different actors and their divergent interests or antagonistic relations, they can be very difficult for researchers to assess. This is because these actions may be hidden or the actors seek to conceal these from the researchers. This is often so for contingent and precarious workers, such as migrant workers. Understanding these relations therefore calls for qualitative research measures such as in-depth case studies to better unravel the relational dynamics. A key methodological issue is how to access a hard-to-reach population and how to get all relevant actors to participate in the research, for example, in interviews. A gatekeeper approach can overcome some of the sampling problems, but there may be other equally relevant solutions. When researching topics characterized by antagonistic relations, where actors may perceive the situation very differently, it is important the researcher seeks to triangulate the data to secure the most valid findings, as some interviewees may not be willing to provide the researchers with the full and objective facts, for instance, on wages and working conditions. Actors may have divergent perspectives on the factual matters or perceive the research as part of a political process, whereby they can further their own agenda.
