Summary This case study deals with interviews conducted in sensitive research contexts. Not surprisingly, actors in sensitive research environments are very reluctant to share information with outsiders. The authors put their focus on approaching potential interviewees and conducting interviews in such circumstances. In particular, they share experiences about actors engaging in cross-border trade gained in two different field studies. While the first study refers to cigarette smugglers in Eastern Europe engaging in a kind of partnership of convenience, the second one concerns diamond dealers who are interconnected through strong ethnic and kinship relations
