Protection of Children's and Youth's Informational Rights They are at the forefront of technological adoption and continue constituting the largest and fastest growing user-public of global media platforms, this way cementing a future consumer base for digital communication services and products. Yet, youth and in particular children are only recently the focus of policy which aims to prioritize their informational rights as a matter of a larger cartography of digital rights and human rights. The Round Table explores the nexus of communication and control on children’s lives as they are both users-consumers as well as, importantly, emerging and young citizens. What are the challenges to children’s human rights in the digital realm and what are the implications for European democracies?
