Optional Fields
This paper aims to (i) provide an overview of the prevalence of electronic/cyberbullying among children aged 9-17 in the Irish context and its persistence/variation over time; (ii) to explore the characteristics of those most at risk of cyberbullying, and (iii) to inform policy making regarding online safety and media literacy. Methods: The research takes a quantitative approach, conducting secondary data analysis on the first three waves of the Growing up in Ireland (GUI) Child cohorts, a representative sample of children living in Ireland between the ages of 9-17. The data allow an examination of the digital lives of children both cross-sectionally and longitudinally – and places it in the context of their broader lives.
