The research essentially aims to examine whether and how the right to privacy and data protection for children and youth in the digital age should be re-thought. The project focuses on a critical analysis of the child’s right to privacy and data protection and investigates whether there is a need for a re-conceptualisation of those rights in the light of recent legal, technological and social developments.
