Post-Growth Innovation Lab Seminar: Samer Abdelnour (University of Edinburgh)

Samer Abdelnour will present a recently published paper suggesting that in contexts of violence methodological reflexivity alone is insufficient to prevent researchers from causing harms to vulnerable people and communities. Rather, researchers should embrace ‘political reflexivity’, which can equip researchers to better identify, understand and mitigate harms, and where possible, challenge structures that do the marginalizing. The paper draws on feminist standpoint epistemology and contributes to growing debates about decolonizing research methods.
