7 Nov 2022

In this conversation, Paladia Ziss (@pyziss) talks with Meena Sadr, student from Afghanistan, and Hannah Pool (Max-Planck-Institute Cologne) about the ethics and politics of collaborating with research assistants in research in and on Afghanistan. Hannah is the author of the award-winning PhD dissertation '"Doing the Game": The Moral Economy of Coming to Europe" (@hnnhpool). Meena (@meenasadr) transcribed Hannah's interviews with Afghan migrants; later she was forced to flee Afghanistan herself following the takeover of the Taliban.
