EU Kids Online: Final Report
by Livingstone, S, and Haddon, L (2009), EU Kids Online
The aim of this report was to identify, compare and draw conclusions from existing and ongoing research at the intersection of three domains:
- Children (up to 18 years old) and their families
- Online technologies, especially the internet
- European empirical research and policy on use, risk and safety
The context of this report:
- With 75% of European children using the internet, some observers celebrate children´s youthful expertise while others worry that they are vulnerable to new forms of harm. Policies to balance the goals of maximizing opportunities and minimizing risks require an evidence-based approach.
- Funded by the European Commission´s Safer Internet Programme, EU Kids Online (2006-2009) is a thematic network that aimed to identify, compare and draw conclusions from existing and ongoing research on children and technologies conducted in Europe.
