Abstract: As international research collaborations increase, the ethics of doing research involving children and their families has emerged as a significant and challenging aspect of the process. Potential issues include procedures around gaining consent, assumptions about children and their families, and the use of qualitative and participatory-based research methods. This paper poses some of the difficulties faced by scholars working in international contexts, describes what these issues look like within four current approaches to research with children, and offers recommendations for researching in diverse contexts.
