News 2017

The Culture Secretary has commissioned Professor Sonia Livingstone, Professor Joanne Davidson and Dr Jo Bryce to provide up to date evidence of how young people use the internet, the dangers they face, and the gaps that exist in keeping them safe. The report will contribute to the Internet Safety Strategy aimed at making Britain the safest country in the world for children and young people to be online. The new cross-Government drive is being led by Culture Secretary Karen Bradley MP on behalf of the Prime Minister with a green paper expected in summer 2017.

The report will be an updated version of this 2012 literature review produced for the UK Council for Child Internet Safety (UKCCIS) Children's Online Activities: Risks and Safety.

Professor Livingstone commented:

“It’s really important that the UK’s new Internet Safety Strategy is grounded in solid evidence about children’s online risks and safety. We are now reviewing all the latest studies we can find, to counter some of the panicky headlines, put the risks into perspective, and guide the optimal mix of actions from government, industry, schools and parents.”

On Friday 27 January, Professor Sonia Livingstone will speak at the Computers, Privacy and Data Protection 2017 conference ‘The Age of Intelligent Machines’.

Professor Livingstone will participate in a panel which discusses how best to protect the privacy & welfare of children & teens – so called digital natives – who are increasingly targeted by companies across their devices and online activities. She will bring insight from her work with the UK Council for Child Internet Safety Evidence Group to examine how and when children’s commercial media literacy develops, necessitating protection from regulation, parents and media education.

"After everything that happened in politics in 2016 is there anyone left in the world who doesn’t think that journalism matters to democracy?" On 6 January, Charlie Beckett published a piece in the New Statesman on the relationship between journalism and politics. The article, Did the press create post-fact politics? also features on the Polis blog.
