What we work on.

UKRI statements

This project is supported by UK Research and Innovation through the Strategic Priority Fund as part of the Protecting Citizens Online programme. Grant reference: EP/W032481/2.

Introduction

The online world is a curious but uncertain world. It enriches many facets of life but at the same time exposes citizens to a variety of threats that may cause harm to them, their loved ones and to wider society. Many of these harms result from a complex interaction of societal processes driven by diverse stakeholders: we call these Complex Harms.
