Abstract

As we all await to imminent arrival of the Internet Safety Strategy white paper, it seems clear that both the direction of policy and corresponding public discourse is that any issues faced by young people online are the fault of technology and should therefore be rectified by the service and platform providers. This article proposes a model for online safeguarding that places the child at the centre and their rights as an overarching wrapper which we hope will allow legislators and policy makers to place the focus on new directions on the child, rather than continuing to chase a technical solution that is clearly impossible to catch.
