Internet Safety for Children: A Study of Policy Responses in China, Japan and South Korea

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

As China, Japan and Korea seek to boost Internet adoption, the impact of the Internet on children is an issue of societal concern and the target of policy interventions, non-governmental initiatives and industry responses. This study reviews these efforts to promote children’s Internet safety by examining regional trends and paying special attention to policies and initiatives unique to each country. It finds that these efforts to promote Internet safety for children are reflective of and shaped by the three countries’ particular socio-cultural characteristics and have three main foci – managing inappropriate and objectionable contente, controlling excessive Internet use and promoting a pro-social online environment. A range of measures has been employed to promote children’s Internet safety including filtering, classifying and labelling online content, establishing hotlines for the public to report objectionable content, setting up counselling and treatment camps for excessive Internet use and introducing campaigns to promote prosocial online behaviour.
