In this chapter, the background to the EU Kids Online project's policy objectives is reviewed and the principal recommendations that emerged from the findings highlighted. The focus is primarily on Europe and policy actions framed at a European level and/or implemented within member states of the European Union. Against a background of intense debate regarding the effectiveness of self-regulatory regimes as mechanisms for online child protection, the chapter examines gaps in policy formulations for internet safety, asking whether current policy is effective and how policymakers can address future challenges in an area that continues to evolve and become more complex.
