Qualitative research among smuggled migrants raises methodological as well as ethical questions. In this article the implications of fieldwork among this specific group of people are thoroughly discussed. Also migrants who have been smuggled have a past, a travel experience and some have a confrontation with immigration officers which can have a concrete impact on the story provided to the researcher and as such on the data collection. Besides, once the story is told, the researcher is responsible for how best to deal with this often secret information.
