#BOURE2020: Understanding children’s online behaviour to inform protection strategies in East Asia
Sustainable Development Goals: 4, 16
- SDG 4 - Quality Education
- SDG 16 - Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
How can understanding children’s online behaviour inform protection strategies in East Asia? Social media platforms are central to children’s daily lives, but while online platforms can provide a gateway to opportunity, they can also expose children to potential abuse and exploitation. By taking a child-centred, participatory approach, this study researched how children interact with social media, their perceptions of risk, and the steps they take to mitigate online risks.
