This chapter addresses some of the key theoretical and methodological questions related to cross-national comparative research, focusing on the research field of (new) media and communication technologies. Following their presentation and some critical reflections in the first part of the chapter, these methodological considerations are applied to the topic of children's online behaviour and online risks and opportunities, taking the research conducted within the European Union (EU) Kids Online project as a concrete empirical example.

Keywords:   comparative research, media, communications technologies, online behaviour, online risks, children, EU Kids Online
