Simon Milner, Director of Policy, UK and Ireland, Facebook

Victoria Nash, Oxford Internet Institute


Internet safety has been at or near the top of the political agenda in the UK for half a decade. From the Bailey and Byron reports, the formation of UKCCIS, 'active choice', Maria Miller's June call to action to the industry, to the Prime Minister's big summer speech and his November summit – no stone has been left unturned in the drive to protect children from the Internet's dark forces. BT and Facebook have both borne the brunt of politicians' attention and Simon Milner has therefore been in the thick of the political debate throughout this time. Has it all been worth it? Will the UK's children have a better internet experience compared with kids elsewhere?

Please note that seminars will be conducted ‘off-the-record’ under Chatham House rules.
