About Social Research NZ - what we do

Developing internet technologies such as information and communications platforms, AI, the Internet of Things and Big Data along with advances in mobile and wearable smart technologies, have the potential to bring tremendous social benefits but invariably also have consequences in relation to children and young people.

​At Social Research NZ we are committed to:

  • ​Undertaking and disseminating research to develop knowledge to assist policy makers and educators in addressing social issues arising from technology.


  • Questioning, informing and shaping regulation and policies affecting children's engagement and use of digital technologies.


  • Strategic consulting with organizations advocating for children's privacy, safety and digital inclusion.

​Dr Keen brings expertise from fields of personal data protection, privacy, pornography regulation and policy practices. She has worked with government agencies, NGOs, internet intermediaries, educators and tertiary providers.
