Lebenswelten geflüchteter Menschen in ländlichen Regionen qualitativ erforschen: Methodische Überlegungen zu einem partizipativ orientierten Forschungsansatz

This working paper addresses methodological presuppositions and opportunities of empirical research on subjectively perceived marginalization of people in their respective life-worlds. Particularly processes of socio-spatial exclusion and lack of participation of marginalized groups in rural areas could be covered with the tools presented in the course of visually supported and participatory oriented biographical interviews. In order to consider life-worlds, social practices and resulting processes of exclusion and inclusion from the individual's angle, the interrelation between researcher and participants has to be challenged. Accordingly, issues of positionality and power are raised, as well as reflexivity and self-perception of researchers. The authors sketch principles of a qualitative research design and present a guideline to be applied in the course of biographically-narrative research with refugees.
