Summary Cyber violence is growing; it is a global problem for governments, educational authorities, teachers, parents and children alike, the author argues. Given the insidious nature and rapid rise in cyber violence, the paucity of empirical research on cyber violence and cyber safety, it is clear that we need a concerted effort on both the policy and practical level. Most importantly, we need substantial funding to investigate what remains an under-researched area so as to inform good policy and practice. The article discusses why cyber violence is happening; what the main issues are; how to improve cyber safety; and existing safety initiatives. The author concludes that current initiatives to address cyber violence and cyber safety are well intended but we need to make a more concerted and systematic effort, based on further research, if we are to tackle the problem through policy and practice on the national and global level.
