Global development research is, by and large, built on fieldwork undertaken by researchers who immerse themselves in the context they wish to study, and engage with people and their situated actions, relationships and ideas. With this book, we invite our readers to join us in an open-ended discussion on how experiences of fieldwork-based research shape and inform our understanding of global development. Following a relational perspective, and an inter-disciplinary and inter-generational approach, this volume aims at facilitating such a discussion by bringing into dialogue reflections on fieldwork experiences by leading figures in Development Studies and accounts from younger scholars currently engaging in the early years of their research.
