Chapter Abstract: This chapter discusses ethics questions related to researching children’s well-being. It explores some conceptual difficulties related to “well-being,” explains the background to research ethics, and links the two. It points to some of the ideological roots of well-being research and the correspondent need for critical reflection. It draws on examples from previous research experiences and from Young Lives, an ongoing longitudinal study of child poverty in Ethiopia, India, Peru, and Vietnam.
