116: Children’s Online Activities, Risks and Safety: A Literature Review by the UKCCIS Evidence Group

Professor Sonia Livingstone, Professor Julia Davidson and Dr Jo Bryce, with Saqba Batool, Ciaran Haughton, Anulekha Nandi, and the UKCCIS Evidence Group (Nov 2017)

A summary of the main findings of a literature review identifying trends, recent developments and emerging issues related to online risk of harm to children. The report examines implications for safety policy and practice using key results of recent qualitative and quantitative research. The review drew on the UKCCIS Research Highlights Series and the research reports they summarise, a call for evidence circulated during February 2017 to UKCCIS members and other experts, keyword searches of academic and grey literatures, as well as research reports and publications already known to the authors.
