This working paper provides a short overview of the challenges and opportunities related to child protection and the use of encryption technology. While it does not constitute the UNICEF organizational position on the topic, it is meant to inform UNICEF on the issue and to reach and engage professionals, including nonexperts, within and between the child rights and privacy rights sectors. This paper will provide an overview of the debate around encryption and its possible impact on children’s right to protection from harm. It also reflects on the pros and cons of some proposed solutions.

LANGUAGES:

Encryption encodes information so that it can only be read by certain people. ‘End-to-end’ is a robust form of encryption where only the users communicating can read the information. In other words, third parties – such as service providers – cannot decrypt the information. It matters for children because while it protects their data and right to privacy and freedom of expression, it also impedes efforts to monitor and remove child sexual abuse materials and to identify offenders attempting to exploit children online.

UNICEF’s Cross-divisional Working Group on Child Online Protection
LANGUAGES:

The production of evidence on interventions for reducing violence against children (VAC) has steadily increased over the years. Yet, gaps exist that need to be addressed when it comes to research investment priorities and future studies. This brief summarizes the key findings from the Evidence and Gap Map (EGM) on interventions to reduce violence against children in low- and middle-income countries. All technical details can be reviewed in the main report.

The rise of social protection into the limelight of social policy has opened up space for understanding how it can act as a key interface between states and citizens. This paper rethinks social protection through the lens of citizenship. It considers how the design and implementation of social protection can be shifted away from discretionary and technocratic forms, to forms which stimulate vulnerable citizens to make justice-based claims for their rights and demand accountability for the realization of those rights. It puts forward a conceptual framework for social protection with three modalities through which citizens can be engaged: as shapers and makers; as users and choosers; and as passive consumers.

Adolescence is a time of transitions when experimentation, risk taking and active peer interactions can be viewed as a part of the development process. Yet, for some groups of young people with reported poor psychosomatic health, low life satisfaction or unhealthy eating habits these experiences may be different.

LANGUAGES:

Los indicadores proporcionan una señal a los responsables de adoptar decisiones ya que indican si —y hasta qué punto— una variable de interés ha cambiado. Los indicadores pueden utilizarse en todos los niveles del marco de resultados, desde los insumos al impacto, y deben estar relacionados con la teoría del cambio del programa. Los indicadores desempeñan una función importante en todas las actividades de seguimiento y evaluación, incluida la evaluación de impacto.

LANGUAGES:

Los diseños cuasiexperimentales identifican un grupo de comparación lo más parecido posible al grupo de tratamiento en cuanto a las características del estudio de base (previas a la intervención). El grupo de comparación capta los resultados que se habrían obtenido si el programa o la política no se hubieran aplicado (es decir, el contrafáctico). Por consiguiente, se puede establecer si el programa o la política han causado alguna diferencia entre los resultados del grupo de tratamiento y los del grupo de comparación.

LANGUAGES:

Un modelo es una representación verbal, gráfica o matemática de las relaciones sociales o económicas. Los modelos proporcionan un marco simplificado ya que se centran en las relaciones de interés fundamentales y omiten los factores que se consideran más marginales. Los modelos matemáticos describen las relaciones sociales y económicas en una notación algebraica. Los modelos más simples son modelos con una sola ecuación. Por ejemplo, la función de producción de salud en la economía expresa un resultado directo en materia de salud, por ejemplo, la tasa de mortalidad infantil en función de los ingresos, la educación femenina, la inmunización, los aportes nutricionales, etcétera.
