", the Institute is examining the risks to children's safety in online communication within an interdisciplinary research network. Among other things, it is conducting a systematic review of the relevant legal and regulatory framework, including the relevant stakeholder groups, with the aim of identifying obstacles and opportunities in terms of regulation, procedures, technical solutions and media literacy. The focus lies on normative programmes under criminal law, youth protection law, data protection law as well as civil and consumer protection law and the initiatives and offers for counselling, prevention and media education. The project aims to compare the classical approaches of legal youth media protection with the preventive approaches of educational youth media protection - especially with regard to the preservation and implementation of children's rights - and thus contribute to the improvement of resilience, legal framework and the interlocking of the actors.
