This workshop will explore potential conflict between child protection and youth rights, as outlined in article 13 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child: “The child shall have the right to freedom of expression; this right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds.”
The workshop will look at the tension between child protection and child rights. While it is necessary to protect children from harm, it’s also necessary to protect their rights of free expression which, as outlined by article 13 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, includes “freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds,” in any media, including social media. What does this say about the use of filters and monitoring technology at home and in school or restrictions on children’s rights to participate in social media.

Session description:
The University of Gezira, Sudan (newcomer, pre-proposal 47) and TaC-Together against Cybercrime International (pre-proposal 262) partnered to organise a common workshop during the IGF 2013 on the subject of child online protection, including the most vulnerable children, and focus on specifics and needs in the developing countries.
Children are the most beautiful thing we possess. Adults must support and guard them against threats. We should assist our children and Youth to see the future and hope of the present.
Young people and children are frequent users of ICTs and the Internet; therefore they need to be aware and should be kept informed about online risks and responsibilities. Promoting a common cybersecurity culture is essential in order to prevent online risks, protect children and, thus, permit them to obtain the maximum benefit that the Internet offers.
It is important to underline the need to pay particular attention to vulnerable children and Youth often absent from current studies or research analysis, as they are considered difficult to reach due to different reasons. Vulnerable children and Youth are often considered to be a target group difficult to approach; however, they represent an important group of Internet users.
Today, in a number of developing countries, the subject of child online protection is not enough approached and is characterized by particular specifics and needs. This workshop proposes to discuss these particularities and to exchange experiences with experts and participants from developing and developed countries of the world.

The concrete issues to be discussed are:
1) The most effective ways to protect children from online threats, including sexual harassment and sites of violent nature with the focus on needs and specificities in the developing world.
2) New topics to attract the attention of children for the betterment of education and innovation and make the Internet a friend of children.
3) The need to pay particular attention to the protection of vulnerable children online, their specific needs online, exchange of worldwide existing solutions and initiatives.
4) The need to develop a proactive plan as protecting children on the Internet isn’t just about installing a content filter and calling it a day. How to develop an effective child online protection framework for the developing countries?

Session description:
Privacy is a key emerging issue in Internet Governance processes. Looked upon most often as an area of risk and protection, it is in this workshop viewed as an area of opportunity and innovation. The success of new innovative services and applications with multimedia messages that disappear after receipt and mounting trends in user strategies to navigate safely and anonymously online, all suggest that a paradigm shift is on its way. This shift entails a shift in focus where protection of privacy rather than being described solely as an area of governance, or as an obstacle to innovation and sharing, can be viewed as the foundation for the evolution of digital media business models that more critically understand digital media as an evolving architecture of human social relations, and privacy as a new basic market demand. In this view, the generation that is growing up with the open online networks is key to our understanding of the concept of privacy as it evolves today. The way in which young people approach and navigate their online private and public lives challenge how privacy is currently conceptualized, debated and regulated.

Preparation and aim of workshop

The aim of the workshop is not to present solutions, but to inspire a change in perspective helped forward by young people’s views and experiences of the open network as well as creating a synergy among policy debates with this perspective.
The Danish Media Council will draw on knowledge gained through its work in 2013 with the Think Tank initiative DigitalYouth that aims to inspire a debate about youth’s private and public lives on social media. The IT University will draw on its latest results from a survey among youth on their use of mobile media which will be launched in the autumn 2013.

Session description:
This workshop will explore online anonymity, its importance to different user groups (in particular young people), the challenges it poses for varied service providers, its relationship with freedom of expression and its impact on internet governance.
Anonymity is pertinent to discussions on privacy openness security and access. It was an important topic that featured in the 2012 global youth survey, workshop & in the many other discussions that the Youth IGF Project took part in in Baku.
The topic of anonymity has relevance for considerations of human behaviour, internet governance and online commerce, all of which this youth chaired workshop would consider.
For many, anonymity is crucial to participation & engagement online enabling freedom of expression. It can enable an otherwise unheard voice but can provide a mask & help facilitate negative behaviour.
In addition to the human behaviour challenges online posed by anonymity, anonymity also poses challenges for Internet Governance.  A balance is required between establishing and maintaining both security and privacy.
We will investigate these challenges & benefits & how anonymity is challenged & supported by different concepts of privacy & security.

Session description:
Youth participation has become a buzz-word in online child protection as in many other societal sectors. The voice of young people has certainly been amplified through social media to gain greater visibility in the public arena, but what role does it really play in shaping and impacting governance models in the real and virtual world?
The main purpose of this workshop is to give young people the opportunity to participate – on an equal status – in on-going IGF debates on public policy issues relating to the internet. Under the framework of the European Commission’s Safer Internet Programme, the Insafe/INHOPE network of Safer Internet Centres has built up – since 2004 – extensive experience in collaborating with young people to deliver a safer and better internet. The annual Safer Internet Day, which is now celebrated in more than 100 countries across six of the world’s seven continents, has been particularly successful in providing a global focal point for awareness raising on online risks and opportunities. In line with the Insafe/INHOPE network’s continuous engagement with youth across (and beyond) Europe to gain their views on current and emerging online issues, we propose a highly interactive workshop session in which adult and youth representatives will jointly examine how best to promote valuable interaction with (and amongst) youth on issues related to internet governance and the most effective means of turning words into action.
In the first part of this session, four young panellists from across the world – representing truly diverse youth perspectives from Europe, Africa, and Asia – will elaborate on their ideal internet governance model and essential steps to achieve the full potential of the internet as a universal tool for communication and learning. Based on findings emerging from an online youth-led research programme and preliminary peer-group discussions, they will argue how – in their view – young people’s opportunities online are often hampered. Also, they will urge specific stakeholder groups to take up responsibility and to come up with possible solutions. These presentations will be complemented by the views of two groups of youth representatives from North and South America who will connect remotely to the workshop and act as respondents.
In the second part, discussion will continue in small parallel groups, part of which will happen in an online meeting environment with remote participants. At this point, adult representatives – from industry, government, education, and civil society – will have the opportunity to defend their case and, if reasonable, put the ball (partly) back in the young people’s camp. Once all group members have agreed upon a shared understanding of what is at stake, they will explore and define responsibilities for all actors involved. Concrete strategies (with specific engagements to resolve the challenges) will be put forward.
The session will come to a close with electronic voting – involving both offline and online attendants – of the various scenarios proposed. Together, participants will stipulate the three steps which stakeholders will jointly take to make substantial progress in the coming year.
