Innocenti Discussion Papers One in Three: Internet Governance and Children’s Rights AUTHOR(S) Sonia Livingstone; Jasmina Byrne; John Carr Published: 2016 Innocenti Discussion Papers Typically, in the discussions around the use of the Internet, children are acknowledged only in the context of child protection while their rights to provision and participation are overlooked. This paper specifically argues against an age-generic (or ‘age-blind’) approach to ‘users’, because children have specific needs and rights that are not met by governance regimes designed for ‘everyone’. Policy and governance should now ensure children’s rights to access and use digital media and consider how the deployment of the Internet by wider society can enhance children’s rights across the board. The paper ends with six conclusions and recommendations about how to embed recognition of children’s rights in the activities and policies of international Internet governance institutions. + - Cite this publication | No. of pages: 37 | Thematic area: Child Protection, Governance | Tags: child protection, children's rights, governance, internet × COPY BIBLIOGRAPHIC CITATION Sonia Livingstone; Jasmina Byrne; John Carr 2016 One in Three: Internet Governance and Children’s Rights. , pp. 37.
