Childwatch International interacts and collaborates with researchers, IGOs and NGOs working on issues related to Ethical Research.
A Childwatch thematic group was approved in 2010 to undertake an international scoping project entitled, Building Capacity for Ethical Research with Children & Young People. This has arisen out of Childwatch’s commitment to encouraging ethical research practices through the provision of up-to-date information, training and resources to help Key Institutions (KIs) undertake high-quality, effective and creative research studies with children. The result has been the launch of ERIC Ethical Research Involving Children and Young People.

The book is published by the Norwegian National Research Ethics Committees. The book launch was arranged and hosted by the Norwegian Centre for Child Research, NTNU. This book is the indirect result of an initiative taken by Jon-Kristian Johnsen at a one-day conference held at Litteraturhuset in Oslo on 18 March, 2011.
