UNICEF calls for action to prevent bullying, harassment for young people online in Cambodia

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) warned on Tuesday of the dangers posed by online violence, cyberbullying and digital harassment for the 85.7 percent of young people aged 15 to 24 years old who are online in Cambodia.

In its statement, the UNICEF called for concerted action to tackle and prevent violence against children and young people online.

The call, made on Safer Internet Day, comes following a recent UNICEF poll of young people, which received more than 1 million responses over five weeks from more than 160 countries and regions, and suggestions from a series of student-led #ENDviolence Youth Talks held around the world, the statement said.
