Conducting Fieldwork on Land Conflicts in Kabul’s Peri-Urban Areas
Kabul’s peri-urban spaces represent a fascinating area for study given the strong push by the government in recent years to have properties in and around Kabul formally surveyed and registered. Such registration could prevent conflicts with respect to land, especially amongst family members claiming inheritance rights. This piece focuses on the process of conducting fieldwork and collecting data in Kabul, with the specific goal of providing information on what it means to conduct fieldwork in Kabul's peri-urban sites by identifying challenges a qualitative researcher may face. This piece does not focus on our research findings, as this will be produced in a subsequent report.
