This project was undertaken to provide children’s views on digital rights, at the upcoming Day of General Discussion of the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child. In 2014, 148 children from 16 countries and speaking eight different languages, participated in workshops, to share their views on their rights in the digital age.
Overall, the research finds that policy makers and practitioners must engage children in an ongoing conversation about how to use digital media to support children’s rights. Children want to be involved in these conversations. They want to take responsibility for making the internet a better place, and they have valuable expertise to share.
