Mapping the Territory: Online Child Safety and Free Speech Advocacy

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The perspectives of child safety and free speech advocates are often portrayed as if they are diametrically opposed, particularly when decisions about internet governance are at stake. Advocates representing a range of perspectives on this debate met in Oxford to explore the potential for reconciling these fundamental rights in the context of the internet. This paper presents an analysis of the areas of consensus and dissent expressed during this forum, and the implications for internet governance.

By defining a new framework to discuss child protection online that transcends the moral panics that currently dominate the debate, and focuses instead on accurately defining risks in line with the evolving capacity of the child, participants were able to find common ground - most specifically in calls for
precision and transparency in any policy response. Despite areas of continued disagreement, the results of this forum indicate that there may be policy strategies that help to defend the rights of children while preventing those who would use child protection as a strategic pretext for broader goals of censorship and repression from dominating the agenda.
