IIC THAILAND WITH SUPPORT FROM THE Electronic Transactions Development Agency OF THAILAND IN COLLABORATION WITH ACADEMY OF PUBLIC ENTERPRISE POLICY & REGULATION (APAR), UTCC SCHOOL OF LAW

DATE: THURSDAY 8 - FRIDAY 9 FEBRUARY 2018

VENUE: The Electronic Transactions Development Agency Office

The Thailand Chapter of the International Institute of Communications (IIC) held a forum on “Building a Safe Online Environment for Children” on 8-9 February 2018 in Bangkok. The forum, supported by the Electronic Transactions Development Agency of Thailand (ETDA), Chulabhorn Royal Academy, and the Academy of Public Enterprise Policy & Regulation (APaR), School of Law, University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce, drew participants from internet companies, regulators, educators, civil society groups and users. It discussed ways to build an internet that offers a safe environment for children, while affording them all the advantages of the digital ecosystem. Children can be exposed to an array of online harms which include cyberbullying, online threats and exploitations. The speed and anonymity of internet make it difficult to render effective protection to children. The forum addressed key initiatives in public policy frameworks, private initiatives, and communications literacy that help protect young people and enable them to reap the benefits by the digital transformation of their economies and of society.
