SIKID Psychology

The aim of the joint project "Safety for Children in the Digital World - Improving Regulation, Networking Stakeholders, Implementing Children's Rights" (SIKID) is to fundamentally improve safety for children and adolescents in online communication. To this end, topics of regulation, prevention, and resilience are addressed from (safety) ethical, (child) legal, and (developmental) psychological perspectives. Partners in the SIKID project are the International Center for Ethics in the Sciences and Humanities (IZEW) at the University of Tübingen (coordinator), the Leibniz Institute for Media Research, Hans Bredow Institute (HBI) Hamburg, and the Professorship for Developmental Psychology at Leuphana University Lüneburg.


The focus of the sub-project SIKID Psychology at the Department of Educational Psychology at the TU Berlin is the psychological analysis of digital contact and interaction risks in the course of development, the analysis of children's and young people's views on safety on the Internet, and the participatory development of an approach to promoting digital moral courage among young people. The sub-project is closely interlinked with the other sub-projects, builds on interdisciplinary collaboration and, in the context of the joint project, offers a more holistic approach to improving safety for children and young people in online communication.
