THE INTERNET ON OUR OWN TERMS: How Children and Young People Deliberated About Their Digital Rights

This report provides a rare glimpse into the attitudes of a group of young people under 18, invited to interrogate their relationship with the internet and digital technologies. It is the culmination of an unusual research project, using actors and fictitious scenarios to promote debate, and the use of iterative juries to find consensus. It was a process designed to put the unmediated voices of children at the heart of the internet debate. By Baroness Beeban Kidron, Founder 5Rights.
