Launching Digital Futures for Children – A new LSE and 5Rights Research Centre

Building on the ground-breaking work of the Digital Futures Commission, we are pleased to announce the establishment of Digital Futures for Children the DFC - a research collaboration between 5Rights Foundation and the London School of Economics and Political Science.

Professor Sonia Livingstone, Director of Digital Futures for Children, will set out the centre’s ambition and Chair Baroness Kidron will discuss opportunities for advocacy for children’s rights approaches to the digital world.

There will also be an interactive panel discussion entitled: “Realising children’s rights in the face of rapid technological innovation.” It will include contributions from experts and the opportunity to ask questions, discuss the centre’s research plans, and learn how webinar participants can get involved.

We will ask:

  • What role do (and should) child rights play in redesigning and redeveloping the digital world?
  • How can realising children’s rights in a digital world benefit their lived experiences?
