Power and politics in migration narrative methodology: Research with young Congolese migrants in Uganda
This paper explores the power dynamics inherent in qualitative research in-volving migration narratives. Drawing on the author’s experiences collecting life histories and constructing narratives of Congolese young people in Uganda, this article addresses the ethical and methodological issues of rep-resentivity, ownership, anonymity and confidentiality. It also explores the im-portance of investment in relationships in migration narrative research, but also the difficulties that arise when professional and personal boundaries be-come blurred.
