This master dissertation aims to discuss the elaboration and execution of an anthropological research that intended to study gender equality promotion policies funded and managed by some Norwegian apparatuses of international cooperation and development aid. As it was a research that aimed to take bureaucrats and development experts (among them, many social scientists) as research interlocutors in order to carry out an institutional ethnography, a significant part of the research procedure was marked by several attempts of access to the fieldwork by the researcher. However, there were several refusals from many of the interlocutors regarding collaboration with the initially proposed research. Difficulties in accessing fieldwork, as well as the limits imposed by research interlocutors, are used as levers for reflections on anthropological data production and ethnographic writing procedures and for an attempt to embody knowledge production.
