Chapter 10 Challenges of conducting equity research in the field: the example of Bhutan
Restricted access

In this chapter, we argue that the knowledge gains in this qualitative study emerged through the ongoing development of the relationship between the research participants and researchers. Conducted in a cross-cultural setting, Bhutan, we reflect on researching gender equity research in a culture different from that of the researchers. In the discussion, we reflect on two specific instances of undertaking gender equity research in the field: our role as researchers in a cross-cultural setting and the field challenges encountered when undertaking a study of diversity in a field. Lessons learned in this chapter contribute to the body of knowledge on cross-cultural research especially undertaking research in a non-Western context.
