Digital technologies are being used to inflict significant harms online, in particular with regard to technology-facilitated gender-based violence and technology-facilitated violence against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning (LGBTQ+) people. This modern form of violence perpetuates inequality and has significant impacts on its targets.
Supporting a Safer Internet is a multi-year project led by the Centre for International Governance Innovation, with support from the International Development Centre and Ipsos. As part of the project, an international survey examined the influence of gender and sexual orientation on people’s experiences with online harms, with a focus on countries in the Global South. Data was collected from 18,149 people of all genders in 18 countries.
The Highlights features key findings from the quantitative survey presented in the project’s special report along with recommendations for governments, technology companies, civil society organizations and researchers.
