Written from an experiential standpoint this chapter provides an angry and powerful statement of the use and abuse of the research subject, and of those intermediaries drawn into credentialising researchers who would document the experience of British Muslims. The chapter provides a telling insight into the emotional and existential violence experienced by those who are used as a facilitator of others’ access to Muslim research subjects. The analysis provided here speaks eloquently of the wariness of the researched to research, and echoes the earlier chapter Two in underlining the state’s interest in controlling the validation of ‘credible’ expertise.
