The Ministry of Justice and Human Rights of Argentina, UNICEF, and the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society have co-hosted the first regional symposium “Conectados al Sur: Argentina” on children, youth, and digital media on December 9-10, 2014. At the event, we debated a broad range of issues that children and adolescents face in the digital environment, such as unequal access to technology and connectivity; the relationship between the right to privacy and freedom of expression; the link of the media with social networking; innovation to bring technology access to vulnerable populations; and spaces for participation and innovation.
The objective of the symposium was to 1) exchange ideas and analyze the state of research, policy implementation and progress within the framework of the rights of children and young people and their use of new technology 2) to bridge research, policy, and advocacy communities, and 3) strengthen the network and foster collaboration among participants across regions and countries.
