FOCUS


Right to Protection and Safety

In all areas of life, both online and offline, children must be protected from any form of violence, abuse, negligence and miss-treatment. Along with guidelines and laws that serve the purpose of protecting children, appropriate technical provisions must be implemented, while empowering children for self-protection in the digital world. (UN-CRC Art. 3) Protection and safety in the digital world arises from a mix of different instruments and the children’s empowerment for self-protection. It is the duty of parents and pedagogues in educational institutions to promote the empowerment of children, while governments have to provide the legal framework and preconditions.

The model of Intelligent Risk Management constitutes the different strategic goals of protection, based on the development along the child and adolescent phases and, with increasing age of the children, focuses on the growing ability to cope with risks.
