Episode 4: Children's Rights

The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child states that all children should have equal rights, no matter who they are, where they live, what gender they are, or whether they are wealthy or in poverty. No child should be treated unfairly for any reason, and protecting children is something that every society should work towards - from safeguarding the use of their data and images, through to enabling access to law and justice, and enforcing rights around citizenship.

Gavin Freeborn is joined by Professor Helen Stalford, a leading expert on European Children’s Rights, and PhD student Kindah Ali who has conducted research on the use of children’s images by the media during wars.
