This chapter explores ethical issues arising from conducting research on child protection and disability and provides guidance for researching, documenting, and monitoring violence against children with disabilities. Key considerations include the need to balance respondents’ right to participation in research while maintaining the highest level of ethical standards and ensuring the benefits to respondents or communities of documenting violence against children with disabilities are greater than the risks to respondents and communities. 5 figures.
