This chapter explores how researchers interact with their research/the researched (who may hold very different values to researcher) whilst maintaining personal values and addressing ethical issues. Drawing on the three authors’ experiences in the areas of hate crime, sexual violence and extremist ideologies, the chapter considers the preparation, process and perspectives inherent in what could be viewed as ’difficult’ research terrains. Several areas are addressed, such as establishing the research relationship; establishing credibility with participants who hold different or conflicting views to the researcher; managing research dynamics; issues of analysis and interpretation; and challenges in giving voice (in publications) to ‘difficult’ or unconventional attitudes and experiences.

Keywords:   Research values, Sexual offending, Sexual victimisation, Hate crime, Homophobia, Northern Ireland, Extremist ideology, White supremacy
