Young people and online risk
2011 (English)In: Youth culture and net culture: online social practices / [ed] Elza Dunkels, Gun-Marie Frånberg and Camilla Hällgren, Hershey, Pennsylvania (USA): IGI Global , 2011Chapter in book (Other academic)
The authors suspect that the young perspective has been left out when online risk and safety are discussedin contemporary research. The aim of this chapter is to give a critical approach to this matter and questionfear as a driving force for protecting young people online. Interviews with children about their views ofinternet use (Dunkels, 2007) and a study of safe use guides from European countries conducted in 2008(Lüders et al, 2009) form the empirical base. The discussion in the chapter is underpinned by ideas ofchildhood as a social construction, emerging ideas of power relations pertaining to age and theories oftechnology reception. The authors also introduce a metaphor, the layer cake, to better understand howthe same action can be viewed from different vantage points.
