How safe are European children online? An interview with Leslie Haddon from the EU Kids Online project

In this interview I talk to Leslie Haddon about the EU Kids Online project. The project explored the internet use of children, as well as the risks they encounter as a consequence, across 33 countries. It is unsurprising that this issue has received much media attention given the rapidity with which internet access has spread across society and become a everyday feature of the lives of many, though by no means all, children. However it is an easy target of speculation and moral panic. I found the research project intriguing because it was such a systematic attempt to empirically map the contours of a process which can so easily treated with little but hyperbole and fear.
