Some reflections about EU funded research on youth of immigrant origin: the politics of subjectivity, ethics and standpoint

This paper is a reflection upon an EU funded project about the youth of immigrant origin. Reflections will review some key aspects of the research project and its methodology: a) positionality of the researched and researchers (diversity of the research team vs uniformity of the researched), b) the ethics of how & why involving the researched, c) dealing with cross-cultural (im) possible comparisons.
