eNACSO’ contribution to IGF 2012: Is the UNCRC fit to purpose in the Digital Era?
At the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) 2012 in Baku, eNACSO hosted a discussion that focused on the way in which the Internet is posing new challenges to the UNCRC as well as the wider child protection community worldwide. The discussion revolved around the question “How can the work of the UN’s Committee on the Rights of the Child be strengthened so as to ensure that the contemporary importance of cyberspace is fully reflected in its deliberations and the advice it gives to child protection agencies?”
What follows is a report of the discussion. eNACSO’s intention was to start a debate about these issues which all parts of the policy-making and child protection community will participate in as we all collectively try to strengthen and take forward the work of the UNCRC.
