Online safety in modern society has become more important with the advancement of new computer technology and mobile phone applications.
These types of technology are not always used by people for positive communication, they are also used for harm.
Online hate crime and online harassment are two emerging issues within modern society. It has been found that there are low rates of victims reporting these crimes due to the fact that they feel that as they are being targeted online it will not be seen as significant.
This webpage has been designed to give information and support about online hate crime and online harassment in the hope that it will encourage students to feel confident in reporting this internally to the university center or externally to the police.
This project was funded by the Office for Students.
