How can contextualised data be collected in a short time in conflict-affected sites? This paper shows how a Participatory Ethnographic Evaluation and Research (PEER) approach can overcome many of the challenges of conducting research in such conditions. Here, the authors trained South Sudanese marginalised women to design research instruments, then used them to collect and analyse qualitative data.

The article reflects on the research process, highlighting benefits and critiques of PEER approaches in conflict-affected settings.
