Norway

In brief

Children in Norway are characterised by a high, independent and sophisticated use of the internet. As of 2014, 95% of 9- to16-year-olds have access to a computer, 82% have a tablet, and 94% have their own mobile phone (Source: Barn og medier, 2014|). Norwegian children encounter more risks than the European average, but also possess a high number of coping skills. Norwegian parents tend to prefer proactive parenting, allowing exploration and socialisation online.

 

Highlights

  • The Norwegian findings have informed policy development nationally and internationally, including the UN Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General on Violence against Children, Ms. Marta Santos Pais.
  • In 2014 coordinator Elisabeth Staksrud was awarded the national Safe Use Award for her work on disseminating research findings to a wider audience, work that was not afraid to challenge common perceptions.
  • Resent highlights include a national book on “Digital bullying”.
