EU Kids Online II: EU Kids Online II: Enhancing knowledge regarding European children's use, risk and safety online

Enhancing Knowledge Regarding European Children's Use, Risk and Safety Online

EU Kids Online II aims to strengthen the knowledge base regarding children’s and parents’ experiences and practices of risk and safety in their use of the internet and new online technologies in Europe.

The project is operationalised according to four methodological principles:

(i) a critical approach is required to examine, test and qualify taken-for-granted assumptions regarding the nature, extent and interpretation of online risk, the nature and degree of children’s internet literacy and the effectiveness of parental regulation;

(ii) a contextual approach is required to identify the social, cultural or individual factors that account for differential experiences of, and responses to, risk;

(iii) a child-centred approach is required to recognise and inform the gap in perspectives and practices between adults and children;

(iv) a comparative approach is required to identify and analyse similarities and differences in children’s online risk experiences across Europe.
