Crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic, disasters or violent conflict present numerous challenges for researchers. Faced with disruption, obstacles and even danger to their own lives, researchers in times of crisis must adapt or redesign existing research methods in order to continue their work effectively. Including contributions on qualitative and digital research from Europe, Asia, Africa, Australasia and the Americas, this volume explores the creative and thoughtful ways in which researchers have adapted methods and rethought relationships in response to challenges arising from crises. Their collective reflections, strategies and practices highlight the importance of responsive, ethical and creative research design and the need to develop methods for fostering mutual, reflexive and healthy relationships in times of crisis.
