This chapter determines how qualitative methods can be used to study the processual notion of integration with the notion of home. This would help in understanding how the refugees interpret their flight and settlement. The chapter gives a brief background to forced resettlement and the previous research in the field, and then presents a detailed account of the research process. It is focused on several concerns, which include why and how certain questions were chosen, the use of scales and photography, and the issue of gatekeepers and key informants.

Keywords:   qualitative methods, integration, notion of home, flight and settlement, forced resettlement, research process, gatekeepers
