[Commlist] Pre-conference ECREA Section: Children, Youth and Media

Thu Feb 06 22:36:00 GMT 2020

CFA - Pre-conference ECREA Section: Children, Youth and Media:
Workshop on Ethics and Children’s Rights in the Digital Age

Brief description and call for abstracts:
The purpose of this event is to engage interactively participants in a
fruitful dialogue about “Ethics and Children’s rights”. Participants
are encouraged to discuss their research and topics in small groups in
a workshop steered by a Senior Researcher. Thus, we encourage
participants to submit a 250-word abstract on one of the two following
themes, distributed in two sessions:

Session 1. Ethics in research with children: When doing research with
children and young people, ethical issues arise at all stages of the
life cycle of the project and invite to reflexivity. Issues related to
trust are raised when: i) Contacting gatekeepers and accessing
children and young people. Requirements may differ depending on the
country, the place of research and the groups we want to do research
with. ii) Building rapport and negotiating consent with children and
young people and explaining issues related to anonymity and
confidentiality. iii) Saving and using photographs and videos of
children and young people in research outputs (security, misuse,
dissemination…). iv) Involving children and young people in the
analyses of the data and in the dissemination of results.

Session 2. Ethics and Children’s Digital Rights: Thirty years ago the
UN Convention did not envisaged the fast pace of digital evolution and
related challenges children and families face. Since then, the digital
landscape has been increasingly accessible to younger generations of
children and decisions to keep children safe online has created
tensions between rights to protection and participation. Considering
some polarised debates and controversies on the inevitability of
digital in children’s lives and in finding a balanced approach, we
invite researchers and scholars to discuss and reflect on ethics
concerning children’s protection, participation and provision rights
and how these transfer to the digital? What changes in the digital
sphere? Or not? How can we think these rights properly, namely right
to privacy, image rights, right of personal portrayal.
