For the Innsbruck School of Peace Studies, which draws on very specific ontological assumptions on which I will elaborate in the chapter about the transrational model, it is key that an author is critically self-aware, not only at the beginning of a study, but also throughout the process of research. The researcher changes during the process of writing and, at least in my case, in every sense of the word, the researcher is searching.
