Thursday 25 February 2021


Save the Children in Sri Lanka publishes research on Online Violence In Sri Lanka "A National Research on Incidence, Nature and Scope"

This study has been based on three key objectives:

  • To assess the incidence, magnitude and impact of online/cyber violence against children in Sri Lanka.
  • To assess the nature and effectiveness of response and support mechanisms currently available for children in responding to incidents of online/cyber violence committed against them.
  • To learn and incorporate the views and proposals of children on measures required to prevent online/cyber violence, and a responsive and impactful response mechanism, that addresses both the effective and efficient enforcement of the law, as well as the provision of appropriate and effective psychosocial support. The research design and the research questions were developed in order to achieve the aforementioned three key objectives.
