BACKGROUND

Recommendation of the Committee of Ministers on the rights of the child in the digital environment

Council of Europe
Europarat
Ansicht: Leitlinien zur Achtung, zum Schutz und zur Erfüllung der Rechte des Kindes im digitalen Umfeld

How to better respect, protect and fulfil the rights of the child in the digital environment is at the core of the new Recommendation adopted today by the Council of Europe’s Committee of Ministers. Building on international and European legal instruments, the text provides comprehensive guidelines for action by European governments.

The digital environment shapes children’s lives in many ways, creating opportunities and risks to their well-being and enjoyment of human rights. Governments are recommended to review their legislation, policies and practices to ensure that these adequately address the full range of the rights of the child. States should also ensure that business enterprises and other key partners meet their human rights responsibilities and are held accountable in case of abuses.
