I have not conducted similar research, but I did write an article on
ethical issues in violence against women research in which I review many
of the issues. I describe quite a few international studies, researcher
trauma, etc. Anyone interested should contact me off-list and I can send
an electronic copy of the article. It was in the journal, Ethics and
Behavior.
Best of luck in your important work.

Dear all, 

I am in the process of designing empirical methodology for my doctoral
thesis which will involve a 4wk stay in Bosnia. I am evaluating
international legal protections from sexual violence during armed
conflicts.

I am intending to interview key professionals from therepeutic, medical,
social work, NGO and legal backgrounds.
I am acutely aware that given the widespread nature of sexual violence
that some of those professionals working with victims may themselves
have been victimised. 
I have worked with victims of sexual violence in the past but not in a
research capacity. 
Whilst the thesis does not rely on input from victims, (in fact my
supervisors were adamnent that such a project wouldn't receive ethical
approval at PhD level) I recognise that such input would inrich the
research.  

I was hoping that some of you might share your experiences of having
conducted similar research and provide guidance in the design of
suitable ethically sound methodology.

I look forward to hearing  from you soon.


Many thanks,
