‘Hard to reach’ or ‘easy to ignore’. Strategies and reflections on including co-researchers

Section: Technology and Knowledge, Research Policy & Development

In this paper we reflect on how to do research with co-researchers who are perceived as ‘hard to reach’. We critically debate this expression and recommend the usage of the term ‘easy to ignore’, which rather fosters self-reflection instead of creating a double deficit. We elaborate on
important aspects about getting into contact, ensuring continuity, choosing methods and enhancing participation.
