Qualitative researchers grow more sophisticated as time passes, engaging in self-examination of practices and fi eld relationships searching for ways to make the practice of
qualitative research both more democratic and increasingly emancipatory. Theory, however, rarely exhibits a one-to-one correspondence with practice. This is especially true in human research since most practitioners begin research with social, educational, economic and cultural “standpoints” which represent major power positions. Despite these power imbalances, researchers struggle with refl exivity around their practice to enable research to serve participants’ needs for greater equity and social justice. Sensitivity to participants’ needs, however, is only part of the equation, since qualitative research is now engaged in a neoliberal, globalized and corporatized/ managerial context, where market forces impinge on even academic life in the West, and where capital seeks the cheapest labor in order to maximize its accumulation. Neoliberal capitalist political systems deploy power in ways which sabotage efforts to create an emancipatory social life, and consequently, strenuous efforts to engage an ethical research, with ethical relations with and among participants, create additional strains on qualitative researchers, both in their home institutions, and in the field among their respondents.
