Children and Media Violence
The thematic focus of the Yearbook 1998, rests on research concerning the influences of children’s exposure to violence on television. Articles discuss findings on children and televised violence resulting from research undertaken in different parts of the world. A number of shorter articles describe the media landscape as it relates to children in a variety of countries. The documentary section presents statistics on children and the media, international declarations and resolutions, regulations and measures, and a selected bibliography.
