Learning Digital Safety in the Developing World

Principal Investigator:
Urs Gasser

The Youth and Media team at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society is in engaged in a research project concerning the online safety risks to children in developing countries. The digital divide between developed and developing countries is narrowing, and while this brings many new opportunities and resources into the lives of young people, it also exposes new groups with less digital literacy to a range of cyber threats. The working group will make a significant short-term contribution to research and practice by collecting and making available the scattered information that is available on this important, but under-researched topic.
