The eQuality Project is dedicated to the creation of new knowledge about young people’s use of networked spaces, with special emphasis of privacy and equality issues. Our research projects aim to highlight pressing privacy and equality issues that today’s young people encounter including: behavioural marketing; online advertising; digital literacy; and, tech-facilitated violence and harassment.

As a project, we’re committed to listening to young people and giving them a chance to articulate their own experiences and needs for better online policy and practice. We believe that by working closely with young people, we will be better placed not only to inform digital policies, but also to highlight young people’s online experiences in order to create new knowledge about privacy and equality issues in networked spaces.
