This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on the concepts discussed in the preceding chapters of this book. The book considers the logic of the response to various forms of violence and harm enabled or enacted via technology. It illustrates the necessity of continuing to reflect upon the potential implications of the use of technology to expose, prevent and manage technologically facilitated violence rather than relying on the assumption that technology is inherently best positioned to provide solutions. The book draws different approaches to the question – where Milivojevic and Segrave challenge the articulation of e-trafficking, others such as Jane, and Maher, McCulloch and Fitzgibbon, explores how harassment is embedded within emerging and novel technological spaces that are socially mediated. It considers what it means to be mob attacked, to be surveilled via GPS or to constantly receive misogynistic comments on social media questions – issues that are highly specific to an emerging online discourse.
