New Book: Cross-Cultural Child Research: Ethical Issues
Research on and with children in cross-cultural contexts presents several challenges—concerning consent, methodology, risk and responsibility. In the volume Cross-Cultural Child Research, experienced researchers share their reflections on these issues. The book is published by the Norwegian National Research Ethics Committees. The book launch is arranged by the hosted by the Norwegian Centre for Child Research, NTNU.
The present volume is the indirect result of an initiative taken by Jon-Kristian Johnsen at Childwatch International Research Network. The essays in this anthology are based on talks given at a one-day conference held at Litteraturhuset in Oslo on 18 March, 2011. The meeting was financed by the Norwegian National Research Ethics
Committees and Childwatch International Research Network with additional support from the Norwegian National Commission for UNESCO.
