• What new digital literacies and coping skills are they developing?
• How can parents and policy makers balance online opportunities and risks for children?
• How do children themselves perceive online risk and safety issues?
• Why do risks differ from country to country, and what new risks are emerging?
• How can governments, educators, NGOs and industry better support children online?
