Abstract: Can Yildiz’s doctoral study focuses on the experiences of Romanian and Bulgarian Roma women offenders as it aims to investigate the crucial social processes which produce extremely disproportionately high numbers of them in a London prison. She is about to start doing with her fieldwork in May 2015.  Drawing on her experiences obtaining ethical approval and to formulate her research framework, this paper will discuss some of the bureaucratic, theoretical and practical challenges in conducting research in this field.

Can Yildiz is a PhD student in Urban Geography at King’s College London. Her doctoral research is based on the experiences of Eastern European Roma women offenders in London. She holds MA on migration, mental health and social care. She is a qualified social worker.
