Cyberbullying is the most distressing online challenge facing secondary school students in NZ.
But even for adults who work to protect young people, cyberbullying can sometimes
seem a difficult issue complicated by legal and technological challenges.

However, NZ is very fortunate to have a visiting law professor, Dr Simone Van der Hof, from
the Netherlands, who is in residence at the School of Government at Victoria
University. Dr Van der Hof is an expert in the legal aspects of cyberbullying.
NetSafe is excited to have someone of her calibre to talk to these issues. With
this in mind we have partnered with the School of Government at Victoria
University, as well as with the University of Auckland, to deliver a shared
seminar at the University of Auckland on Cyberbullying.

In addition to Dr Van der Hof, NetSafe's research manager, Dr John Fenaughty, will present
findings from his recently completed Ph.D on the nature of cyberbullying in
Aotearoa NZ. Dr Fenaughty's research explores what cyberbullying in NZ looks
like, what forms are distressing and what factors are associated with
resiliency to this challenge.
