Abstract [en]

An inductive research approach, influenced by constructive grounded theory, can not only generate interesting findings and conclusions but also raise questions concerning ethics and quality during the process of gathering and analyzing data through qualitative interviews. The aim of this chapter is to describe and discuss methodological and ethical issues that arise when conducting research within a specific interpretative research tradition in settings that are highly familiar to the researcher. Such familiarity can be seen as a weakness, since norms and values can be shared with interviewees and therefore taken for granted, yet it can offer a possibility to see through rhetoric and distinguish authentic “backstage” glimpses of everyday concerns in a particular field. Interviews conducted at workplaces also include some amount of unintentional observations, for the researcher enters an environment that speaks to the visitor through its organization and through the ways staff members respond to visitors (and each other) during the visitor’s stay. Questions discussed in this chapter concern the difficulty of balancing ethical concerns with quality in qualitative research.
