Methodologies of Activist Research are very much born out of a dilemma: many Activist Researchers find themselves in a social space located somewhere in between academic and activist circles, yet they often feel rejected by both. On the one hand, academia demands political neutrality and rejects the researcher's involvement in social movements. In activist circles, on the other hand, researchers - as engaged as they might be - are frequently accused of turning the movement into a talking shop.
