What does it mean to be a researcher? That’s the question The Right to Research (McGill-Queen's University Press) explores, as it highlights the work of nine refugee and host-community researchers from across Africa, Europe, and the Middle East. Prevailing narratives would dismiss these views as coming from historians, but this book sets out to challenge that thinking. Chapters address a variety of topics including education in Kakuma Refugee Camp, the political power of hip-hop in Rwanda, and the development of photojournalism in Kurdistan. The goal is to further the conversation around historical scholarship and who has the right to participate.
