This case draws on the methodology of a doctoral research that examines the gendered aspects of the ethnically constructed armed conflict in southeast Bangladesh and explores the lived gendered experiences of indigenous women and men. Three key aspects of the research methodology are discussed in this article. I emphasise that intersectionality and narrative methodology are most helpful in doing empirical research on ethnically constructed conflict, and I explain how participants were engaged by the use of a critical anti-oppressive approach. This article addresses questions such as which methodology is appropriate for conducting research on gendered aspects of ethno-nationalist conflict, and what are the ethical considerations and challenges for carrying out research on other cultures in a situation involving conflict.
