Security in the digital space is one of the issues that is becoming more and more relevant in societies around the world.

The publication "In front of the screen - Research on gender-based violence in the digital space" brings the results of research conducted in the first half of 2022 on the population of girls in the final grades of high schools in three cities in Serbia: Belgrade, Niš and Subotica as part of the project "Integrated response on violence against women and girls III" implemented by UNICEF, UN Women, UNFPA and UNDP in partnership with the Government of the Republic of Serbia, with the support of the Government of Sweden.

Examining the frequency, forms and types of gender-based violence in the digital space, the authors state that the spread of the influence of digital networks not only intensified the existing forms of gender-based violence, but also created new mechanisms for harming girls and women.
