This exploratory study is part of a series produced by the Social and Civic Media Section at UNICEF New York through its Digital Citizenship and Safety project. The Digital Citizenship and Safety project aims to get a better understanding of the digital landscape in a range of different countries, mainly those with a developing or emerging economy. The project starts with a data collection phase, during which exploratory, quantitative and qualitative studies are conducted to then produce evidence-based communication materials to raise awareness on the optimal and safe use of the ICTs. The concept of Digital Citizenship is then advocated at the local government level through advocacy workshops, seminars and conferences on how to maximize ICTs’ opportunities while minimizing risks.
The Digital Citizenship and Safety project aligns itself within the scope of work conducted by the Social and Civic Media Section at UNICEF, whose mission is to work with new technologies including social networking tools, SMS and digital mapping to empower children and young people to play an active role in society.
The Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC, 1989) guarantees the right to express views and to be heard (Art.12), freedom of expression, including the freedom to seek, receive and impart information (Art.13), the freedom of association and peaceful assembly, and the right to information, (Art.17) amongst others. Although drafted before the Internet became ubiquitous, the CRC is highly pertinent when it comes to adolescents and youth accessing, posting and sharing content online. With the rapid development of ICTs in the last decade, these rights are analysed and clearly applied to the digital age under this project.
The key Results of the project are twofold: a) Adolescents and young people are educated about their rights, ICTs’ opportunities, and protected from ICTs’ risks through the concept of Digital Citizenship using diverse communication channels and/or inclusion in school curricula. b) Through advocacy work, policy makers are provided with evidence-based policy recommendations to maximize ICTs’ opportunities and minimize ICTs’ risks.
