5Rights at the Internet Governance Forum, 2020

In November 2020, our Founder Baroness Beeban Kidron chaired a discussion at the Internet Governance Forum on the developing UNCRC General Comment No. 25, which will outline the relevance of the UNCRC with regard to children’s rights in the digital environment. She was joined by Professor Sonia Livingstone, Dr Amanda Third, and Jutta Croll, members of the Steering Group for the General Comment, and Professor Olga Khazova, member of the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child and co-chair of the Working Group on General Comment 25. The final member of the panel was Tarique Kenny, who gave us a brilliant young person’s perspective of children’s rights in the digital environment, and valuable insight into internet access issues in South Africa.
