IAMCR 2016 Pre-conference on Children’s and young people’s rights in the digital age

26-27 July, 2016

This conference seeks to unpack the ways digital media intersect – both positively and negatively – with children’s rights today and to reflect on how children’s rights might provide a meaningful counterpoint from which to consider the role of ‘the digital’ in advancing human rights more broadly. To catalyse the debates, we now call for short paper proposals analysing key dilemmas or tensions shaping children’s rights in the digital age. We welcome empirical and/or practitioner pieces.

Convenors: Sonia Livingstone, Amanda Third and Mariya Stoilova

Abstracts due (250 words): 15 February, 2016
