Abstract

"Children, Risk and Safety on the Internet: Research and Policy Challenges in Comparative Perspective." Sonia Livingstone, Leslie Haddon, and Anke Görzig (eds.) Policy Press. July 2012. --- This book examines the prospect of enhanced opportunities for learning, creativity and communication set against the fear of cyberbullying, pornography and invaded privacy by both strangers and peers. It argues that, in the main, children are gaining the digital skills, coping strategies and social support they need to navigate this fast-changing terrain; but it also identifies the struggles they encounter, pinpointing those for whom harm can follow from risky online encounters. Lisa Jones finds this book’s overall framework is a refreshing one, given the level of alarm that often surrounds discussions of youth internet safety.
