What to Consider While Researching Young Refugees and Migrants: Takeaways from a Field Research in Turkey
Keywords:Youth migration, research, young refugees, international migration, methodology
The youth perspective still has not been sufficiently included in the relevant research processes although research on young refugees becomes even more important to analyze this group's situation and needs, produce policies, and meet their needs. Conducting research on young refugees, as a subject at the intersection of youth research and migration research, requires a series of sensitivities regarding methods, approaches, and other components of the research processes. In this study, the research process, major takeaways, and prominent insights concerning doing research about young refugees will be shared based on the experience of a field study which was completed in 2019 in Turkey. In addition to the methodological and ethical discussions, the study also aims to share the elements that are recommended to consider while integrating young refugees into the processes and the inferences obtained from the experience within the scope of the field research.
