Abstract:

This is a well-researched book located in the theoretical backdrop of sociologist Ulrich Beck’s ‘individualization’ theory. It is essentially an interesting work engaging in the discussion on children’s online risks and rights, drawing from the findings of Staksrud’s thesis and the EU Kids Online project. Besides being a theoretically strong and responsible book that shares social concerns about children’s online risks it presents a powerful debate on the democratic rights for their online safety and protection.
